FHS college movie night is Jan. 22
Floresville High School will host a free college movie night for the Wilson County community on Tuesday, Jan. 22, from 6:30-8 p.m. in the FHS Auditorium on Tiger Lane.
Narrated by Golden Globe-nominee Blair Underwood, “First Generation” tells the story of four high school students -- an inner city athlete, a small-town waitress, a Samoan warrior dancer, and the daughter of migrant field workers -- who set out to break the cycle of poverty and bring hope to their families and communities by pursuing a college education.
Shot over the course of three years and featuring some of our nation’s top educational experts (Richard Kahlenberg, The Century Foundation; J.B. Schramm, College Summit; Dr. Bill Tierney, University of Southern California), this 95-minute documentary explores the problem of college access faced by first-generation and low-income students and how their success has major implications for the future of our nation.
A free dinner will be provided to those who reserve a seat by emailing Aimee Brown at email@example.com.
