Take the First Step is an event being curated by Tonaysia Price (Student Leader) and Okemia June (Academic Supervisor), at Northwest School of the Arts in Charlotte, NC. It's our goal to have high school students be inspired to excel and take risks academically. We want the youth of today to recognize the importance in getting a higher education so we hope to inspire them in taking the chance of going to college. Family and friends are invited so that they are introduced to knowledge that will be valuable to them in guiding high school students. This event offers participants a fun-filled day, while raising awareness about the importance of a high school education and going to college. We offer alternative options in the place of college such as trade schools, the military, and entrepreneurship. The event will have FREE food and drinks along with a raffle and giveaway prizes. The first 100 people to sign up online will receive a prize. With your support of the event Take the First Step, we move closer to a brighter future.
