Tavis Smiley encourages Eastie students to pursue STEM careers

Students at East Boston High School (EBHS) recently learned about opportunities to become the next generation of leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). A student assembly featured presenations from media personality Tavis Smiley and ExxonMobil representative Erskine Frison as part of the "Talented Tenth High SchoolTour." The message of the day: Lessons learned in math and science classes in high school today can lead to success in career tomorrow. Pictured here (left to right) are Mr. Frison, EBHS senior My Chi Tran, Mr. Smiley, EBHS senior Orlando Weller, and EBHS Headmaster Mike Rubin.
