The Greater San Marcos Partnership will hold the Greater San Marcos Education Summit on Tuesday at the Embassy Suites City of San Marcos Hotel and Conference Center.
Tuesday’s summit is expected to highlight the career and technical education programs that are helping fill workforce gaps across Hays and Caldwell counties.
