FCEA’s college signing day is underway. On May 1st at 6:30 pm students from Upward Bound and Talent Search will take part in an event that costs nothing, benefits the future of many, and brings joy to all. More than 100 TRIO students will pack the Tinley Park Convention Center where they’ll be celebrated for their college acceptance, enjoying a bright spotlight on their college plans. Academic excellence is just as worthy of the cheers, shouts, and photo ops as athletic accomplishments.
All students overcome challenges-wether they’re aiming to be the first college graduate in their family or working through tough homework assignments-to graduate high school and enter into post-secondary college. By hosting this college signing day we are embracing these challenges and the students who overcame them. The first step for many of our students to reach their goals is college acceptance. This year, let’s celebrate the first step and all the steps to come.
