College Signing Day
In collaboration with Michelle Obama and the White House Reach Higher campaign, WCAN wants to highlight students throughout Washington state who have committed to going and completing their postsecondary degree.
Ways to get involved and highlight your events:
- Organize a College Signing Day Event! Email WCAN pictures from an event at your school or in your community to celebrate Washington high school students who have committed to going to and completing their postsecondary degree.
- Take a “selfie”! Take a photo of yourself wearing college gear and post to social media tagging @W_CAN and using hashtags #ReachHigher and #ReachHigherWA.
- Post an “ussie” in collegiate gear! Pose for a group photo where teachers, principals, and community members are showing off college paraphernalia from their alma mater or a local college or university tagging the Washington College Access Network on facebook and using the hashtags #ReachHigher and #ReachHigherWA.
Let’s celebrate the significance of our students pursuing education past high school and taking the first step toward a successful and prosperous future!
Our team provides workshops to help college access champions build good systems around College Bound sign-ups for the scholarship and support all students on their way to college. Workshop topics include building a college-going culture, family engagement in schools, FAFSA and financial aid support, and strategies to support the high school to college transition. Check here for information on our workshops happening within communities around Washington.
WCAN provides opportunities to bring practitioners together to develop statewide strategies and discuss best practices surrounding college access and completion. Convenings are meant to be accessible to all education professionals to help them support their students. Check here for information on our next state-wide convening.
