CIS on NBC: 'These students are my heart'
NBC News went to Houston ISD’s Heights High School to interview Meghan Loera, the Communities In Schools of Houston Student Support Specialist embedded there, as well as the school’s principal and students.
The resulting story was part of a special that aired on Sept. 24: Education Now Houston, presented by NBC News Learn, the education division of NBC News.
This event convened school leaders, teachers, parents, students, policymakers and community members for a two-hour live discussion on vital education issues impacting students in the Houston area.
CIS was proud to be part of the conversation, and we’re thankful to NBC News Learn and KPRC Local 2 for shining a light on the work our Student Support Specialists do in Houston-area schools and the impact it has.
