Friday, May 10, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Austin school district is dressing up and getting ready for its 2019 AISD Latino Academic Achievement Awards ceremony, which recognizes Latino students from every middle and high school in the district for excelling in academia, fine arts, sports, ESL and dual language programs. Several community leaders will also be honored for their outstanding contributions to AISD students and schools. In addition, the district will give special awards to a parent volunteer and will present a lifetime achievement award to the late Gustavo “Gus” Garcia, a former Austin mayor and past AISD board president. The event is free and open to the public and takes place on Saturday, May 11, at 10:30 a.m. at the Austin Independent School District’s Performing Arts Center, 1500 Barbara Jordan Blvd.
