SAISD seniors to participate in Mayor’s Signing Ceremony

Some 250 seniors who have committed to attending college will join their peers from across the city at St. Mary’s University on Friday, May 3, for the third annual Mayor’s Signing Ceremony, where they will publicly proclaim their intentions for higher education.

Friday is also College T-Shirt Day, and the entire city is encouraged to wear their favorite college’s T-shirt.

These are just two of a number of events held during Destination College – a week of college-focused events that kicked off April 22 and that is designed to get students fired up about higher education. SAISD students participated in Elementary School Night and Middle School Night earlier this week.

The week will culminate in the Destination College Summit on Saturday, May 4, at Palo Alto College, with high school students from throughout the city attending workshops on leadership, the college application and financial literacy.
