Steps to Success walk a success

With TUSD Superintendent Dr. H.T. Sanchez, inviting a student to reenroll and complete high school at the 2015 Steps to Success walk, July 2015

74 students re-enrolled in high school as a result of our July 31 Steps to Success walk—74 lives turned around!

Here’s a TUSD video of the event. Stay tuned for the next walk!
