But we guess the folks there will still accept the latest good news, from the College Board.
DeBakey is one of just three Texas schools named as "leading the nation in helping African American and/or Latino students to succeed on AP Exams," by the College Board, in an announcement this morning.
Besides DeBakey, the Texas schools include the School of Science and Engineering at Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Magnet Center in Dallas and Valley View High in Pharr.
A total of only 15 schools nationwide earned the honor.
