Uplift Peak seniors recently walked through a sea of cheering fans while holding trophies of their achievements. In this case, the trophies were college applications and scholars from kindergarten through 11th grade were encouraging each senior on the College March to the mailbox.
The College March started in 2011 at Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School (WHEELS) in New York. This year, Uplift Peak became the first school in the South to take part in the celebration of scholars taking a big step along the Road To College.
The below video captures some of the excitement of the event and the promise of a bright future.
