AUSTIN - Representative J.M. Lozano hosted a lunch at the Texas State Capitol Wednesday for approximately 30 students from Duval and Jim Wells Counties who were visiting colleges through the TRIO program.

The high school students took a week to visit colleges like Texas State University in San Marcos, Our Lady of the Lake University and head to Austin for the capitol tour.

The TRIO program gives students the opportunity to tour colleges and get assistance on how to apply for scholarships, financial aid and colleges. Students will have several activities throughout the summer.
