WEBXTRA: Soul to Soul initiative hopes to help African-American students succeed

WEBXTRA: Soul to Soul

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A new initiative called Soul to Soul has been formed at Lufkin High School, and it was formed to help African-American students achieve academic success.

The initiative was formed about two years ago when LHS faculty members and staff noticed that there was a lack of representation of African-American students among the organizations at the campus.

The initiative provides workshops for black student athletes, information on historically black colleges, and tips on how to succeed academically.

East Texas News will have more on this initiative later today.
