Guest Author Visits FISD Staff

On August 18, FISD faculty and staff boarded buses and headed to Grace Community Church to join two surrounding districts Alvin ISD and Dickinson ISD to hear speaker and author Homeless to Harvard, Liz Murray.

Liz Murray completed her degree at Harvard in 2009. Her memoir, Breaking Night: A Memoir of Forgiveness, Survival, and My Journey from Homeless to Harvard (2010), was an instant success making the New York Times’ best-seller list the first week of release and is the subject of Lifetime Television’s Emmy-nominated original film, Homeless to Harvard.
