“My school, and my students, have directly benefitted from Learning Undefeated’s education programs since Hurricane Harvey. Vidor ISD lost the use of 2 campuses during Hurricane Harvey that have yet to be repaired. As of February 2017, our district had 1556 students identified as homeless due to Hurricane Harvey, and many of those are still in temporary living situations. Our faculty and staff of Vidor ISD was impacted as well with over 1/3 of their homes flooded.
The mobile lab came to our district for 4 weeks, to our Junior High and High School campuses. Due to our 5th and 6th graders residing in portables on these campuses, students in grades 5-12 benefitted from this mobile lab. They experienced lab investigations that we do not have the facilities or equipment for, like gel electrophoresis. Our students loved the experience, and even wrote thank you notes to the ladies conducting the labs for Learning Undefeated. We hope the lab will be able to return to our district next year. Our campuses will not be repaired or rebuilt for several years.” — LaNiece A. Sollock, Director of Curriculum Science/Math K-12, Vidor Independent School District
