Participate in GenTX Day to Help Promote Higher Education

GenTX Day will be returning to the Lone Star State for its second year on May 4, 2012, and Superintendent Terry Grier is encouraging all HISD students and employees to show their support by wearing their favorite college T-shirt that day.

Generation TX (pronounced “Generation Texas”) is a statewide movement supported by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board that is focused on building a college-going and career-ready culture.

Last year, Generation TX held its first statewide GenTX Day celebrating the achievements of Texas students, especially graduating seniors who are continuing their education beyond high school.
