Young Owls fly to campus

The Young Owls Leadership Program celebrated five years last week as it brought approximately 60 underserved, high-achieving high school students from the Houston Independent School District to campus for a week.

The program’s mission is to prepare students to be leaders in their communities and to become competitive applicants to top-tier colleges and universities. During the program, students lived on campus, attended mock classes, listened to speakers, visited labs and participated in social, cultural and leadership activities.
