RISE UP/GEAR UP
Nearly 190 University of Washington GEAR UP Rising Seniors are registered for the Mastering College Essentials event which will take place at Yakima State Fair Park on August 2 & 3. Keynote speaker Arel Moodie will kick of Day 1 with his inspiring and motivational session, encouraging students to take advantage off all opportunities to prepare themselves for post-secondary options and push hard all the way to through to the end of their senior year. Students also have the opportunity to attend sessions about selecting the right college, transferring from community college to a 4-year institution, financial aid, and a college fair. A treasure hunt for information will lead them to answers to important questions, as well as a chance to win a raffle prize!
