From St. Austin Literacy Center 

Early this Spring, the Level 3 English students were challenged to write an essay discussing the topic, The Effects of a Natural Disaster on a Family’s Financial Situation. These essays were entered into a contest sponsored by The Houston Center for Adult Literacy and Houston Money Week.

We are proud to announce that one of the students from Beth Strausser’s Level 3 Class, Marina Macias, has been selected as the third place winner in this citywide writing competition. Ms. Macias received her third place award plus a monetary prize of $250 on June 5, at a ceremony held at the Federal Reserve Bank- Houston Branch.
