The sessions will be held on Saturday, April 30, from 10-11 a.m., and again from 1-2 p.m., at the AISD Professional Development Center, located at 3908 Avenue B.

The Texas Academy of Leadership in the Humanities is a residential honors program housed at Lamar University for gifted and talented high school-aged students to spend two years in a university setting.
