Lead to Succeed Meetup #1
Lead to Succeed Meet Ups had an awesome kickoff today. Students gathered in the Lead to Succeed office in the morning, and parents were invited to join them for a continental breakfast. Petra Duecker, Director, did a brief overview of Lead to Succeed for the parents, highlighting college and career readiness activities and service learning goals. Then, the students headed over to UWM's School for Urban Planning and Architecture, where they heard from renowned professor Nancy Frank. Professor Frank's talk was focused on water infrastructure in Milwaukee, and why water is so critically important in the region. After SARUP, the students walked to the admissions office at UWM, where they learned about some of the things to consider when picking a college. The day wrapped up with a tour of UWM given by UWM students.
Bryson Rome-Martin from Destiny High School received the big Meet Up award for earning the most Lead to Succeed points - of all the students in the program! His prize? A $50 Amazon gift card.
