Mercedes High School RGV LEAD Ambassadors

Not only is spring in the air but so is pre-registration! Eighth-grade middle school students from across the Rio Grande Valley can be seen touring high schools to see what lies in store for them in the next four years. Many are excited to enter this new phase in their lives, but some also feel somewhat anxious about the unknown. This is where high school tours come into play. Such was the case in Mercedes ISD when the Chacon Middle School students visited Mercedes High School. To help set students’ minds at ease, RGV LEAD Ambassadors and other Career & Technical student organizations guided the anxious 8th graders through the CTE classrooms, JROTC, the Band Hall, and the gym area. The Ambassadors shared points of interest along the tour and then shared some of their high school experiences with the energetic future Mercedes High School Tigers. They welcomed the students and shared information about their high school experience.

The tour concludes with a brief Q&A, a heartfelt farewell, and best wishes for the next school year.
