eNews Highlight: It’s over—all of my college applications are done!

Now, EMERGE scholar can just wait and let the acceptance letters roll in

Some people thought Olaide Sode was crazy when they found out she was planning to apply to almost two dozen different colleges and universities this year.

But the Carnegie Vanguard High School senior persevered, and she wrapped up the last of the 23 batches of paperwork this week. Now, she is basking in the glow of her accomplishment—and waiting for the acceptance letters to start rolling in.

Read more about Olaide’s experience (and which schools she has already been accepted to) in the Jan. 30, 2015, edition of eNews.

Other stories in this week’s edition include:

  • A look at how HISD is using an international assessment to make sure it is producing globally competitive students.
  • A feature on a retired teacher who came back to the school she helped launch in 1968 to mentor today’s students as a reading volunteer.
  • A story about the district’s campus-based Licensed Athletic Trainers, and how they are helping injured student athletes get “back on track.”
