News from Dr. Cruz: Ready for college, career and life

Team AISD,

You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great. I heard that quote recently and shared it with some of our 4,000+ #AISDProud graduates who walked the stage last week.

These students have made amazing accomplishments and certainly have bright futures ahead of them.

Our #AISDGrads will continue their education at schools throughout the nation including Ivy League universities, the Naval Academy and our own UT Austin.

Some of these students faced enormous challenges, but they refused to let obstacles slow them down. They set big goals and worked hard to achieve them.

Their accomplishments took discipline and drive, and our graduates had something else in their favor—the AISD family.

Every single day, you ensure our students are ready for college, career and life.

Thank you for choosing our district as your work family, and thank you for preparing students for greatness. 

Paul Cruz, Ph.D.
