Miss Texas visits J.J. Rhoads to inspire students to do well on STAAR


Students at Dallas ISD’s J.J. Rhoads Learning Center were inspired and encouraged by a visit from Miss Texas Margana Wood on Thursday, May 10. She has also recently visited other district schools.

Wood highlighted her anti-bullying platform by using the word “SMART” to teach students what to do when they see bullying. S is for speak up; M is for mean kids are not the cool kids; A is for apologize when you hurt someone’s feelings; R is for respecting differences; and T is for teamwork.

Five teachers served as pageant contestants and answered mock interview questions, which Wood called the hardest and most intense part of competing. Each contestant answered a question relating to the five parts of SMART.

Wood’s visit also served to encourage students to do their best on the upcoming STAAR tests next week.
