College-bound APS seniors got their moment in the sun Thursday during the fourth-annual Project GRAD-Atlanta College Signing Day. During the ceremony, parents and college representatives watch as each student signs on the dotted line at the school they will attend in the fall.
Project GRAD (Graduation Really Achieves Dreams) provides activities and support so that economically disadvantaged students chart a path to college by. The program also offers up to $4,000 in scholarships to Brumley-GRAD scholars along with support at the college level. Now in its 10th year, Project GRAD currently serves students at Booker T. Washington High School, The New Schools at Carver and South Atlanta Educational Complex, along with six middle schools and 16 elementary schools.
