Gage, along with the local high schools, presented tips and strategies to find success in High School. Students from High School and College were also available for a Question and Answer Panel. Breakout sessions with specific high schools happened after the workshop. If you missed the workshop, check out the presentation and handouts below.
Former Gage AVID student Henry Diaz is getting recognized all over the area and beyond because he is already starting to set record for his skills as tight end of the HP High School Team. He is also being recognized because he is maintaining a GPA of 3.5 or higher and staying focused on his dreams of a college degree!
It was another amazing event informing students about all the options they have after HIgh School and what they need to do to get to them. Thank you to all our guests and the GEAR UP Leadership Team for organizing this event...see you next year!
