Let’s Go to College
Working in partnership with the Reno Sunrise Rotary Club, Truckee Meadows Community College, and WCSD, the Education Alliance participated in the “Let’s go to College” Campaign. The event supports efforts to reach out to students early in their educational careers about their options after graduation from high school. Some of these options include attending college, pursuing career and technical education (CTE), or military service. Representatives from all four entities plus the schools’ Partners in Education distributed notebooks, pencils, and pens to students, each engraved with the “Let’s Go to College” and TMCC logos. These items encourage discussion of college throughout the year. TMCC’s mascot, “Wizard the Lizard,” and Black Bear Diner’s, “Mama Bear,” also visited classrooms as the supplies were distributed to the children.
