Statewide Student of the Month

"I started the Gear Up program when I was a freshman in High School. I remember being extremely impressed about how organized the program was, and how it puts students as their #1 priority.

Not only does the Gear Up program provide these services; you also make new friends, create future connections, and receive important advice for your future. My favorite thing about the Gear Up program is it builds-off your career interests to help you plan out your High School & College career. 
If you are questioning if you would like to join the Gear Up program and if it is for you, I can guarantee you will absolutely not regret the countless opportunities that you will receive!"
