On February 4, 2020 Tomball High School held a College Knowledge Night, an event that gives Sophomores and Juniors the opportunity to interact with college representatives. The Texas A&M Department of Economics was invited to this event and Kurt Felpel (Assistant Department Head) spoke to approximately 50 students, parents and families about the benefits of majoring in Economics. In addition to explaining Economics he answered many questions about courses, high-impact experiences and careers in Economics.
This is the second College Knowledge Night that the Department of Economics has been invited to participate in. The first was at Tomball Memorial High School on 19 November, 2019.
