More options are good for our students
Ennis has a history of sending its students to make a splash in areas far and wide, like many a small community, once they graduate from our local school district and contemplate post-secondary education.
We love the stories of students heading to places like Harvard. What community like ours wouldn’t? This was the home to Ed Whitacre, after all, the man behind the recovery of GM, the AT&T genius, a CEO who our students can consider with the relatable knowledge he walked the same streets they do.
However, not every person is meant to move mountains in this life, and we as a community haven’t had a reliable option for some young men and women to pursue other avenues for self-enrichment and improvement.
