Dueitt Middle School students, staff and administrators filmed the video in preparation for and during their annual EKS Day celebration, which was held on Saturday, Sept. 26.

They invited other campuses to join them for Unified Sports activities and talk about Eunice Kennedy Shriver and Special Olympics. The Spring ISD IT/AV department assisted with editing, so it was a complete district effort. Dueitt has been involved in Meet in the Middle since the very beginning, led by Mary Carvell. Spring ISD has been extremely supportive of the program.

The video was created for the Association for Middle Level Education (AMLE) National Conference in Columbus, Ohio, held on Oct. 15-17. Betty Edwards, head of PU’s National Education Leaders Network (ELN), asked if SOTX had a school that would be interested in creating a video describing how they implement the program and the difference it makes. Ms. Edwards incorporated it into a breakout session on student-led social inclusion.
