The American Association of University Women (AAUW) awarded its 2019–20 Career Development Grant to George Ranch High School’s Aisha Christa Atkinson. Atkinson was named one of 63 recipients of the grant and is pursuing a Master’s degree in Educational Administration at Texas A&M International University.

“To be selected as one of the recipients across the United States of America for this grant is an opportunity that I will always be proud and ever cognizant of,” said Atkinson. “The AAUW has bestowed upon me an investment into not only my career, but the futures of my son and the thousands of young women and men I will have the privilege of educating in the decades to come.”

Atkinson is a seventh-year, English Language Arts teacher aspiring to become a campus administrator. “The support of AAUW is giving me a head start on my journey toward accomplishing my academic goals and career aspirations,” said Atkinson. Atkinson aims to become an advocate for the opportunities and resources that address the linguistic needs and college readiness of English Language Learners and at-risk students.
