The Irving ISD announced that IGNITE Texas has signed on as an official Partner in Education with MacArthur High School.

The nonprofit has established an after-school curriculum for year-round student engagement. The program will provide high school girls civic education, exposure to women in political leadership, hands on training and work opportunities, and a peer network of women who support and nurture each other’s aspirations for civic and political leadership.

Merriott Terry is executive director of IGNITE Texas. She recently met with MacArthur and Irving ISD officials to formalize the partnership.
