They may have left their middle-school days behind them, but that doesn’t mean high-schoolers can’t still go back to mentor those who now occupy their old seats. That’s why former students of Johnston Middle School are currently serving as volunteers at the Summer School Program.
The volunteers, who are now enrolled at DeBakey, Bellaire, Westbury, and Lamar high schools, assist teachers with everything from one-on-one tutoring to translating. One volunteer was even hired as a tutor at a learning center due to her experience with the summer school program.
“They are giving back to our campus and as a result to our community,” said Johnston Math Department Chair Clara Yates. “Many of the volunteers are former students, and each summer they graciously return. Our students and staff have truly benefited by the many hours of invaluable service that they have provided.”
