Mrs. Gaby Brown's seventh grade AVID students at Walton Middle School have been learning the importance of social skills and have been practicing solid handshakes and confident introductions all around campus.  AVID students self-assuredly walk up to faculty and staff members, introduce themselves as AVID students, offer a firm handshake, make good eye contact, and speak loudly enough to be heard.  Bright, successful futures undoubtedly await these well-prepared WMS AVID students.
