2ND ANNUAL HBCU/HSI COLLEGE FAIR HOLDS PROMISE FOR MILLIONS IN SCHOLARSHIPS

ST. LUCIE COUNTY – St. Lucie Public Schools (SLPS) officials are looking forward to hosting what promises to be a gateway to college opportunities for hundreds of high school seniors on Monday, January 22, 2018.  The School District will host the second annual Historically Black College/University (HBCU) and Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) College Fair for its students.  With over 17 major institutions slated to attend at Samuel S. Gaines Academy, excitement is escalating about pending on-the-spot scholarship opportunities and prospects for local students to attend prestigious programs.

 

SLPS Superintendent E. Wayne Gent has been a major motivator behind the event since its inception.  “This event has the potential to transform the lives of many of our students.   Last year, over six million dollars in scholarships were offered to our students.  Our seniors are motivated, and they are coming to the Fair well prepared again this year with their completed FASFA forms, SAT/ACT score reports, and high school transcripts.”

 

Gent attributes the success of this event to the District’s highly driven secondary leadership team.  Assistant to the Superintendent Dr. Kevin Perry and Program Specialist Kimberlee Cooper have worked with local, state, and national colleges and universities; human resource organizations; Greek fraternities and sororities; local alumni; as well as local business leaders to make connections with the wide array of learning organizations that will be in attendance.

 

“Our goal is to support as many students in reaching their college and career goals as we can. This College Fair is about students having options, and they are definitely enthused about attending. Our teachers, guidance counselors, and administrators are steadily working with them — doing everything they can to connect their brimming talents with individuals and organizations offering pathways to rewarding careers,” explained Perry.

 

SLPS Human Resources team will also be in attendance to discuss the Promise is a Promise opportunity scholarship with students who plan to pursue education as a career and return to teach in St. Lucie Public Schools.
