Wed 22 May 2013
The College OPTIONS Partnership is pleased to announce the signing of the North State Promise on May 22, 2013 in Downtown Redding at the Market Street Promenade. The event will begin at 3:30pm with the official signing ceremony starting at 4:00pm. Student performances from the Mt. Shasta High School Choir, Vista Middle School Jazz Band and Shasta High School Madrigal Choir will be included in the celebration. Dignitaries from UC Davis, Simpson University and Tehama County Department of Education will speak, along with a North State Student Representative from Central Valley High School.
This collaborative effort was undertaken to ensure that North State students and families have access to superior, affordable higher education, close to home. The North State Promise document formalizes and solidifies a specific promise from our local higher education partners to our North State students and families. This Promise gives special incentives for our North State students to continue their education at the post-secondary level. The Promise also allows our North State students to obtain an affordable, quality education with outstanding educational institutions, located closest to home. The event on May 22 will celebrate the formal signing of the North State Promise document and these commitments. (more…)Share on Facebook
