College can seem daunting, especially if a young person is the first in his or her family to pursue a post-secondary education. Studies show that groups and organizations help students succeed by developing relationships and connections with fellow students and key leaders at a college or university.
To give students that head start, Victory Early College High School partnered with Lone Star College’s Brother for Brother (B4B). The organization helps students develop their academic, personal and social success in school. Volunteer faculty and staff from Lone Star College (LSC) mentor them. The young men of Brother for Brother work hard to support and encourage each other in being responsible students, community leaders and volunteers.
— Personal Courage
Before the midwinter break, more than a dozen male students were inducted in the Brother for Brother organization. Victory ECHS student Bartolo Pereira is president of the Lone Star College-Victory organization. Diego Garza, also a Victory ECHS student, holds the open officer position.
The faculty advisor is Jaime Hurtado, while Fredrick Antwine is the B4B advisor at LSC-Victory. Visit the Brother4Brother webpage to learn more about the organization.
