November 22nd Meeting Recap

On November 22nd, we had our second meeting at Carnegie Vanguard.

We had some special guests join us and speak to the Congress about their respective roles and programs:

Al Jackson, learning coach

Athena Reed, Executive Director at Save our Kids America

Justin Fuentes, HISD High Schools Director

Ted Weisgal, Teacher of Robert’s Rules of Order

Here’s what the individual committees discussed:

The Governance committee amended the constitution, found here,  and talked about creating a formal membership system.

The Outreach/Advocacy committees discussed the problems within their schools and delegated roles for managing social media accounts. They also worked out the logistics for starting a student-run blog.
