On the afternoon of Oct. 12, Congressman Randy Weber took time out of his busy schedule to meet with Health Science students at Shadow Creek High School. The purpose: to simply gain insight in regards to all that Alvin ISD students are learning on a daily basis, and how these particular students will make a tremendous impact in the local communities through their studies and focus on the health science field.
Upon arrival, Weber was greeted by the Principal’s Advisory Committee, also known as the PAC. These students are a group of leaders at the campus that were appointed as tour guides for the afternoon. Their job was to take the Congressman on a tour to show off the various programs offered at the campus. The tour began with a visit to one of the Health Science classes, but continued and concluded with other Career and Technical Education classes. Weber was able to speak with students first-hand hear about the things that they are most passionate about. Students spoke about their desired careers and what they are doing to accomplish their goals.
In addition Weber took time to share information about himself, including why he wanted to become a Congressman, and encouraged each of the students to be great.
“Teachers are in this profession because they want you to be better than they are,” insisted Weber, when speaking to the students in attendance.
“What y’all do today is going to set the stage for where our country goes moving forward,” added Weber.
Weber shared that he became a Congressman because, “I care about my community and my country.”
“We are thankful that Congressman Weber stopped by our campus and allowed our students to share their passions and goals,” said Kelly Hestand, principal of Shadow Creek High School. “It’s always great to have leaders within our community partner with us to educate and encourage our students to be great.”
