Our students have worked tirelessly for the past 4 years to create the opportunities we celebrate with this event. This year we have a graduating class of approximately 600 students. To celebrate their hard work and dedication we will be holding a College Signing Day event. While we would love to be able to provide each student with a gift to support their post-secondary plans, we are unable to do so because of the size of our graduating class. In an effort to maximize our donation and reach as many students as possible, each student who participates in our College Signing Day will receive a raffle ticket to be eligible to win one of the items on our list. The items we are requesting will allow our students to start their next chapter on the right foot; allowing for a smoother transition to their post-secondary plans. A large portion of our students fall under the lower/middle class "gray area" income bracket, where they do not qualify for financial aid yet they do not have lofty college funds and their college tuition will be a strain on the family. The versatile items on our wish list will have a large impact on our students educational experience by providing them with the necessary items to be academically successful in whatever post-secondary endeavor they choose to take on, 4-year college, community college, or career and technical training program. The lap tops and the thumb drives will provide students with the necessary access to technology to facilitate learning. The calendars will help students effectively manage the many demands of a post-secondary education.
