Team Up Challenge winners restore school area

The community project at the Crossroad Center inspires leadership and pride.

The Southwest ISD campus is one of the Team Up! Challenge semifinalists chosen to receive $2,500 in seed money to launch the student-led project.

Students from Crossroads Center, the alternative school at Southwest High School, will use the grant to transform the school’s courtyard into an outside classroom adding tables, benches, shrubs and flowers. The students are led by school counselor Nicole Stone.

The group is in the running for one of five $20,000 prizes which will be announced in April.
