On June 10 Patrick Henry Middle School honored families of awardees and alternates of the California GEAR UP Education Trust awards. GEAR UP Coordinator Peter Lee and Principal Michael Bennett hosted families with dinner and a well attended awards ceremony.
This award is the first step in your pathway to college. It is your responsibility as students to make a plan to achieve your dreams and execute that plan no matter how difficult the task, no matter how far away they might seem. Your family, teachers, and GEAR UP believe in you, now you need to believe in yourself enough to become the student you know you can be. The challenge starts here.
-Sean Brennan, GEAR UP Communications Director
My family is so proud of my son right now. We never heard of a college award in middle school before now. We are so excited to start planning for his future!
-Mother of ETA recipient
Special thanks to the GEAR UP Leadership Team at Henry!
