More than 500 students in Harris County are better prepared to succeed in school this year—and they’re a little healthier—after participating in their local Back To School Rush last month.
The annual event, now in its 11th year, was sponsored by a group of corporate, community, and faith-based organizations, and individuals led by Harris County Family Connection.
