BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Before students and teachers head back for the first day of school on Aug. 16, Bryan ISD hosted its annual Convocation to kick off the school year.

The auditorium at Central Baptist Church was filled with more than 2,000 Bryan ISD teachers and staff. Superintendent Ginger Carrabine, along with many Student Ambassadors, took part in the program.

Tyson Turner has attended Bryan ISD schools since he was young. Now a Junior at Bryan High School, one of Turner’s main priorities at his school is being a Student Ambassador.

“There’s a lot of people in our school,” said Turner. “Not a lot of people get selected. I think it’s great to be able to have a say in which way our school goes. It means so much to me to be able to have a voice for my high school.”

At the Convocation on Wednesday, Turner had the chance to speak to all of the schools and departments in Bryan ISD.

“I got a chance to tell the people how great it is to be a student ambassador. I know it will steer a lot of students in the right direction,” Turner said. “Being I’ve attended Bryan ISD for all these years, it’s very special to me that I can be a leader.”

Superintendent Carrabine said the energy from the people of Bryan ISD at this year’s Convocation was at an all time high. Due to the pandemic, they haven’t been able to do an official in-person Convocation since 2019.

“Seeing everyone from all parts of Bryan ISD is such a treat for us,”Carrabine said. “I mean, it just feels like our whole family is in the same place, which doesn’t happen often.”

Along with embracing new and old staff members and celebrating the upcoming school year, the superintendent launched the newest program that Bryan ISD has in store.

“We are very excited to announce Bryan ISD Build,” said Carrabine. “We are partnering with Habitat for Humanity. We are going to empower the students to rally the troops to build a house for a deserving family in Bryan, Texas.”

Carrabine said more information on Bryan ISD Build will be given to the community soon.
