February Women's Wednesday

  • We had so much fun at Women's Wednesday yesterday. It is a pleasure having the presence of Amanda Puryear, a alumna from PSJA Buell Central High School. Now she is a remarkable writer and poet. She is an example of how to be resilient and follow your dreams, no matter where you come from. Thank you for sharing your experience with our students, your words empower students, and staff.
