EWC GEAR UP Program celebrates GEAR UP Week

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 • 1:11 pm

The Eastern Wyoming College GEAR UP Program announced their participation in National GEAR UP Week 2014. This week commemorates the continuing success of Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP), a college access program providing students and families the support and resources they need for college success.

Since its inception in 1999, GEAR UP has improved educational outcomes for millions of low-income, minority and disadvantaged students across the United States, including over 400 students throughout the EWC Outreach area who are served each year by the EWC GEAR UP Program.

EWC GEAR UP Program will celebrate National GEAR UP Week 2014 by sponsoring a GU awareness table at the main campus in Torrington beginning September 22. The table will be manned by EWC GEAR UP Club members.

To date, the EWC GEAR UP Program has served over 3,365 students by providing academic enrichment programing.
