DECA Students pose with Dr. Rodriquez at Rice University

SRHS teachers Mr. Canales & Mrs. Parden escorted DECA and BPA students to the Jones College of Business at Rice University.

Students had the opportunity to meet Dr. Peter Rodriguez, Dean of Jones Graduate School of Business, who also arranged for students to participate in a question and answer session with current Rice University students.

Discussion topics centered on how the current Rice University students have overcome hardships on their path to college, such as being undocumented and losing their jobs and coming back to school. 

SRHS students also had the opportunity to meet with Jill Foote, Senior Lecturer in Finance, who discussed the stock market and it's impact.

SRHS students then toured the campus and were invited back to the Jones Graduate School of Business for lunch with Dr. Rodriguez. Dr. Rodriquez was incredibly gracious and welcoming to our students.  He visited with all SRHS students and answered many of their questions.
