T.J. Harris Students Aim High

Meridian, Miss. A college rally for the students was held at T.J. Harris Lower Elementary in Meridian Friday.

Every class has been adopted by a college. The children get to wear their college's shirt every Friday if they have exhibited positive behaviors, if they have been on time, and if they have have had good grades.

"We're not just promoting positive behaviors, but we're also promoting a college mentality, and this was just a unique way for us to do it," said LaSonja Roberts, principal of T.J. Harris Lower Elementary.

Roberts says this is a week-by-week journey in order to emphasize college and career readiness.
