Attention to all students in Philly! @ReachHigher and @BetterMakeRoom, the former First Lady Michelle Obama’s initiative, is to curate the 5th College Signing Day event on May 2, 2018. Mrs. Obama will be making a stop to Temple University's Liacouras Center to meet with 8,000 students from Philadelphia’s public, private, charter, and parochial schools. This year’s College Signing Day is the fifth consecutive event that students celebrate together with Mrs. Obama.
What Is College Signing Day?
College Signing Day is an annual event when high school seniors choose to pursue higher education. Pursuing higher ed at a professional training program, a community college, a four-year college or university is an important step towards a person’s future that must be celebrated.
The Philadelphia event curated by Mrs. Obama is not the only celebration of the College Signing Day. Other events are to be hosted across the United States, curated by state communities and organizations aiming to help students pursue higher education.
In her Twitter, Michelle Obama posted a heartfelt tweet:
“I'm so in awe of college-bound students all over the country—you inspire @BarackObama and me every day. We know how hard you’ve worked to make your college dreams a reality. That’s why #CollegeSigningDay is one of my favorite traditions. I can’t wait to celebrate in Philly!” https://twitter.com/BetterMakeRoom/status/981939642210463744 …
