KATY ISD MEN WHO MENTOR BREAKFAST

Keep Encouraging Youth toward Success (KEYS), the Katy ISD mentor program, hosted the Men Who Mentor Breakfast on Jan. 22. Comprised of existing and potential mentors, this annual event served as networking and encouragement for men who already mentor and information and recruiting for those interested in becoming a mentor.

The West Memorial Junior High Trash Can band provided entertainment, after which Superintendent Alton Frailey shared his personal thoughts on the impact a mentor can have in a child’s life. Area Superintendents Dr. Steve Robertson, Lee Crews and Dr. Tory Hill gave campus perspectives on the KEYS program and how they’ve seen first-hand how mentors change lives.

This year’s event included a new format where principals and KEYS liaisons traveled from table to table, discussing topics such as what to talk about, what a KEYS liaison does and finding time to make it work. Facilitators included Dr. Jake LeBlanc, Katy Junior High principal; Scott Rounds, Cardiff Junior High principal; Jeff Stocks, Taylor principal; Greg Little, Mayde Creek Junior High KEYS liaison; Darryl White, Katy High School KEYS liaison; James Cross, Cinco Ranch High School principal; Ted Vierling, Seven Lakes High School principal and Dan DeYoung, Beck Junior High assistant principal.

Boys across the district are waiting for mentors because KEYS needs men. For more information, visit katyisd.org/dept/pie to learn more about the KEYS program.
