Oklahoma College Readiness Leaps Forward

Great day in Midwest City Oklahoma yesterday for the kick off of the National Math + Science Pre-AP and AP programs in two more high schools - for a total of all three high schools in that district. It was a high energy event lead off by Dr. Barresi, superintendent of schools in Oklahoma and a rousing speech by Colonel Cedric George.  He got the students ready with cheers and the simple phrase:

You are the talent
You are the innovation  
You are the future

I wish more students could hear this challenge and get the support from the NMSI program in their schools.  I know if Dr. Barresi has her way many more Oklahoma high school students will get the support and instruction they need for true college readiness.

It was a great day to be a part of National Math + Science and a great day to be in Oklahoma!
