SRSU Second Century Education Summit

Five foundations approached Sul Ross State University President Bill Kibler with an idea for a way to give back to the region they consider special to them. They suggested that Dr. Kibler serve as a facilitator to en-courage the fourteen regional school dis-tricts to serve as an example of collabora-tion, cooperation, and conversations. The foundations look forward to learning more about the needs, ideas, and programs that each school district offers in order to in-crease educational attainment of the region.
