On Feb. 4, 2019, A.V.I.D. teachers from Seymour Rogers Middle School, Donna Benson and Shawn Riggs, chose eight students to go to Sunflower and Prairie View Elementary to inform the fifth graders about A.V.I.D. and its benefits to students.
A.V.I.D. stands for advanced via individual determination, and teaches many life skills that will help students succeed.
“We want to let kids know what is available,” Riggs said. “As far as A.V.I.D. and how it can help them, when you’re little, you really don't know what you want to do with your life, and we as teachers want to not just teach you, but mentor you and help you make the right decisions.”
