Early College Awareness Program
Harvard Club of Research Triangle Hosted First Early College Awareness Program
The Harvard Club of the Research Triangle sponsored our first Early College Awarenss (ECA) event at Sherwood Githens Middle School in Durham. The ECA is a program sponsored by local Harvard clubs throughout the country with the goal of informing and encouraging students and families who don't believe college is an option to come and learn from college counselors, admissions officers, and actual college students. Moreover, the ECA reaches out to middle school students and families so that they can begin to plan and prepare for college before they get to high school.
Thanks to all the students and families who came out for EARLY COLLEGE AWARENESS!! Thanks to Sherwood Githens Middle School for being the host site for the event. The Club expresses gratitude to our keynote speaker, Joby Branion, CEO of Vanguard Sports Group!
We also appreciate our college representatives:
