Mission Impossible? You Can Pivot: Make An Impact Where You Are

Due to last week’s catastrophic winter storm in Texas, we were unable to post last week, but if you are just tuning in, we are on the final installment of our Mission Impossible blog series.

Mission Impossible? Make An Impact Where You Are - Week Two

In case you missed last week, we officially kicked off our new Mission Impossible blog series. In last week’s blog, we heard from Nelson Watson III. In Nelson’s collegiate years at Southwest Texas State (SWT), he impacted others when he helped inspire and form a new organization on his campus named The Coalition of African-Americans Unified for Self Empowerment (CAAUSE), to help change and bring awareness to inequality and unethical practices. We also learned fun facts about Booker T. Washington, who founded the teacher’s college Tuskegee Institute for African Americans in 1881.

As educators, it is pertinent that we embrace education that challenges the mold, encourages next year's trendsetters, and wages war on the “ordinary.”
