Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s Senior Signing Day event at KIPP GCP Pride High School! For those of you who missed it, you can watch a recording of the event at http://pridesigningday.org/2017.
We were honored to celebrate the Pride of 2017 – the ninth consecutive senior class to meet the goal of 100% of seniors being accepted to two or more four-year colleges and universities. This incredible class of 81 seniors has earned 458 letters of acceptance from 106 different institutions of higher education and a combined $11.4 million in awarded state and institutional merit scholarship grants to support their college education ahead.
Earning these opportunities has required an enormous amount of hard work by each of these students and their teachers — all powered by grit, perseverance, and an unwavering team mindset. They have lifted each other up and leaned on one another during challenging times and many of these students will have the opportunity to continue to support one another at colleges throughout the state and across the country. Please join us in congratulating the Pride of 2017!
