We've all been there, the peer pressure, the homework, the adjustments to life in High School. Adolescence and education can for some students be a world for which there is no roadmap.
Today Staff members of NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 tried to encourage students at Eastern Hills High School in Fort Worth find their way.
We were proud to be a part of the 'Score a goal in the classroom' success rally, a chance to share stories about the importance of education, careers and some of our own experiences in high schools.
In addition to a lively discussion with students, NBC 5 and Telemundo also donated $25,000 to the "Score a goal in the classroom" campaign.
In addition to success rallies, the program provides mentors, reading programs and field trips for students of all grades in 39 public and 35 private schools throughout the Metroplex.
The donation is part of the NBC UNIVERSAL foundation fund, which contributes to educational programs nationally.
