HISD’s annual Grads Within Reach walk took place on Sept. 12, 2015, and volunteers convinced more than 80 students to come back to school and continue their education.
Almost 500 volunteers fanned out across the city, visiting the last-known residences of students who had not shown up for class this year and leaving information on how to re-enroll if no one came to the door.
Faculty, staff, and community members from Ortiz joined in the walk this year to encourage students to return to school. Students who want more information on how to come back to school may call 713-556-7017 or visit this page
