    AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students to succeed in education and global society. When planning events such as this, it is imperative to gain the participation of experts in the field. Their willingness to share their time and expertise in the area of college and career readiness was critical to the success of this event. We were fortunate to have a wide range of speakers from all arenas – city government, business, chamber of commerce, and others. It is our collective efforts and thoughts on best practice that will bring our students closer to realizing their personal goals. The talks were not meant to be a single event, but additional resources to propel our students’ work forward.

    Once again, thanks very much for your participation and support for the AVID Program at MCHS.
