COLLEGE STATION -- Five local schools in the Brazos Valley are celebrating tonight after being named to the Texas Business and Education Coalition Honor roll.
Three schools in College Station: Cypress Grove, Pebble Creek and Rock Prairie and two in Bryan: Johnson and Sam Houston were among the 234 campuses out of 8,000 Texas public schools to be awarded the distinction.
The award is considered one of the most prestigious and to make the list, a school must demonstrate three years of high performance in all subjects.
The five schools will be recognized during an awards banquet with the other honorees in December in Dallas.
