Austin "Save Texas Schools Rally"

AHS Students were on the news discussing the budget cuts and marching on Austin.  What a great job guys!

So proud of these three wonderful students.

So proud of our school and how it represented itself during the Save Texas Schools Rally in Austin on Saturday.

Former students from Mr. Duez's World History class, Kevin, Anai, and Ifeoma. 
Just a few of the awesome AHS Eagles who were there. Our state rep. was there in the black button down shirt - Dan Huberty.  Their voices were heard along with 11,000 others!
On Friday evening a group of three outstanding AHS seniors were featured on KPRC Local 2 News in Houston.  Unfortunately I am having trouble finding a link online of the story.  They were awesome.  If I find a link to it, I'll definitely post it here.  They were inspiring.

This story is from the Austin ABC affiliate and did a great job of discussing the rally.  You can see our AHS rally t-shirts in the video!
