Tasbo+Edu: Your college was one of 10 to receive a grant from Raise Your Hand Texas. What will the funding enable you to do?
Thompson: We’re incredibly honored to be a recipient of the grant. It’s more of a scholarship; the majority of the funds from the foundation are directly supporting students while they’re in the program, lessening the financial burden of those who want to be teachers. Raise Your Hand Texas is coming together with us to create an application process for those who are seeking those funds.
