Former Lufkin High School students told about their experiences at historically black colleges and universities at Monday night’s Soul to Soul event.

“I love going to a HBCU college because I feel comfortable in my own skin,” Ashley Lewis said.

The Lufkin Independent School District held Soul to Soul in the Tom Jack Lucas Auditorium to show African-American students different opportunities and goals for high school and college.

Trenise Holman and Jalyn Thomas also spoke about their experiences at HBCUs. The First Missionary Baptist Church choir and students from Lufkin Middle School sang at the event, and attendees were able to eat Bodacious barbecue.

In the last session of the night, Ashley Moreland, investigator for Child Protective Services and a former Texas juvenile justice officer, said students’ absences are getting out of hand.

“The empty seat in the class in the most important, because that student cannot be taught and is missing out,” she said.
