RISE Mentoring through Pearland ISD's RISE program
Connor is a sophomore student at Pearland High School and has a mentor through Pearland ISD's RISE program. When he was first matched with his mentor, Mr. Tulloch, he was experiencing frustration in the absence of his father and was struggling with behaviors that concerned his mom. Immediately after they began meeting every week, Connor started showing more interest in school, looking forward to it. As the weeks went by, his confidence grew and he felt cared for. Mr. Tulloch gave Connor the gift of his own time and their relationship continues to grow strong every week.
