    Welcome Current & Prospective AVID Students!


    AVID in Atlanta, GA at the National Center for Civil & Human Rights

    Our AVID students had a great time on our trip to Atlanta, GA to visit the National Center for Civil & Human Rights, the King Center, and many other amazing attractions. This trip was a first for our AVID program, and we are ever thankful for the Nan Ogburn Cullman Grant that made it possible. This was an amazing opportunity for students to consider the impact of a leader's legacy and reflect on their own legacy and leadership potential.
