Students at Langston Chapel Middle School got a pep talk as they prepare to take the Criteria Referenced Competency Test later this month. WTOC's own Dawn Baker addressed the group on the importance of their education and how decisions they make today, even if they seem small now, can have lasting consequences for their future.
"The tests are very important because they give us an indication of how our students are doing, not only day to day, but also from August to April," explained principal Dr. Evelyn Gamble-Hilton. "For our eighth graders, this is a gateway year as they prepare to move to high school."
In addition to her duties at WTOC, Dawn is also the author of "Dawn's Daughter -Become the best YOU".
