GenTX Day

GenTX Day celebrates and congratulates the students of Generation TX—especially graduating seniors. As students take their next steps towards realizing their futures, communities across Texas are coming together to applaud their successes and support them as they go on to college and begin career training.

On GenTX Day, we want EVERYONE to wear their favorite college T-shirt to show an entire community’s united support for higher education and for Generation TX. The GenTX Day Planning and Promotion Kits gather together everything you need to plan, promote and celebrate GenTX Day in your community as part of the state-wide celebration. Your leadership, support and enthusiasm for GenTX Day can serve as a rally point to launch or fuel the Generation TX movement.

The GenTX Day Training Video below gives an overview of what GenTX Day is all about, what tools and materials are available to you in the kits, and ideas to make a big impact in your community on GenTX Day.
