Starbucks Managers Boost Self Esteem Of Clear Creek Intermediate Students
News Release
Monday, March 05, 2018

Two Starbucks managers Wil Scott and Bert Smith are following up their Communities In Schools-Bay Area-sponsored Career Fair participation by meeting with Clear Creek Intermediate male students.

Communities In Schools-Bay Area is a dropout prevention program serving 15 campuses in Clear Creek and Dickinson ISDs.

Scott and Smith meet every other week to discuss what is going on in the students' lives. Recent topics of the meeting were respect, proper handshakes, eye contact, how to treat young ladies and more.

Wil Scott manages the Starbucks store across FM 2094 from Clear Creek Intermediate. Bert Smith is the manager of the Starbucks across from Baybrook Mall.

"Wil Scott and Bert Smith have generously volunteered their time and Starbucks coffee to help CIS students improve their school experience and outlook on  life. They are dedicated to helping our students become successful students and productive community members," says Priscilla Munoz, CIS program coordinator at Clear Creek Intermediate.

In addition to these self-esteem meetings, Starbucks has donated gift cards as incentives for CIS students and coffee for teacher appreciation. More coffee is being donated for the April 16 Keep Kids in School  golf tournament benefiting CIS' program.
