 Greetings All,

On behalf of the Reach Higher Philly Committee, we would like to formally invite you to the 3rd Annual Reach Higher Philly College Signing Day on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at  the Wells Fargo Center from 10:00am – 1:00pm. This event is aligned with Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher Initiative designed to celebrate ALL college-bound students and their commitment to complete their education beyond high school. 

Each high school is invited to bring up to 100 seniors who have received at least one letter of acceptance from a college or university. College Signing Day will begin with registration and seating by school, remarks by  Dr. Hite, The School District of Philadelphia Superintendent, Otis Hackney, Chief Education Officer, and Keynote SpeakerDon Yu, Director, Better Make Room Campaign.  This event is expected to draw over 5,000 college-bound students, volunteers, and champions of higher education.

On-site admission is welcomed for parents and community members. Doors open at 9:45am

We need your help to make this event a success! If your school is interested in participating, please register by May 26th at the following link:
