Houston Becomes Two-Time Broad Prize Winner
First award from foundation came in 2002
The Houston school district was named the winner of the high-profile Broad Prize for Urban Education for its efforts to prepare all students for college and to bolster student achievement.
"If we keep our young people as our North Star, anything is possible," said Houston Superintendent Terry Grier as he accepted the award last week, "including winning an award like this twice. It's about children and about how adults work together for them."
As the 2013 winner, the district will receive $550,000 in college scholarships for graduating seniors from the Los Angeles-based Broad Foundation .
