Students at one northeast Houston high school are ringing in the new year with high expectations at a campus once considered to be a drop out factory. Here’s part one of our series “What’s Right with Furr.” Sister station NEWS 92 FM’s Carolyn Campbell reports.
Karina is thinking about studying psychology in California. Luis wants a degree in “both” chemical and electrical engineering. And Kevin? Well, let him explain.
“I want to study medicine, a cardiothoratic surgeon,” Kevin said.
The dreams of students from a school that once was considered to be a “drop out” factory.

And changing the world, one student at a time.
