Speakers include:

    • Julian Castro, former Mayor of San Antonio, and the creator of San Antonio College Signing Day
    • Judge Sarah Eckhardt, Travis County’s first female County Judge
    • Steven Adler, Mayor of Austin
    • Dr. Paul Cruz, Superintendent of Austin Independent School District
    • Dr. Kelly Crook, Superintendent of Del Valle Independent School District and
    • Vince Young, former star football player, University of Texas at Austin.

Admissions advisers and college mascots will welcome students to celebrate their achievements and their commitment to postsecondary education.

In addition to tuning in to the festivities at Huston-Tillotson, school communities will be holding celebrations at campuses throughout Austin and Central Texas.

AISD encourages all employees and community members to wear their favorite college T-shirts or gear Friday, May 1.
