College Signing Day 2016

On, Tuesday April 26, RACS participated in the citywide social media campaign, College Signing Day.

At RACS, we are proud of all of our students who are ‪college bound and continue to ‪reach higher to achieve their goals and their milestones! Congratulations and we cannot wait to see the great things you will achieve. Best wishes on your new journey and the bright future that lies ahead.

Our young people are the future of our city, and we should celebrate their accomplishments. We need to show those coming behind them that college is attainable, that they can reach higher, get a great job and later give back to our community.” – Mayor Lovely Warren

 First Lady Michelle Obama began the Reach Higher initiative to encourage students to pursue education after high school.

This year, Signing Day events took place all over Rochester NY to honor graduating seniors who will go on and continue their education at a 2-year college, a 4-year college, a community college, or a certificate or credential program. Even more students, teachers, counselors, celebrities, athletes, and supporters nationwide posted photos in support of students making the decision to Reach Higher.
