College Gear Fridays spark college talk at BAHS
Belfast Area High School learned last academic year it had been selected as a Maine Educational Loan Marketing Corporation (MELMAC) Connect Aspirations to a Plan grantee. The main goal of the grant is to increase college aspirations among high school students.
The high school's inaugural activity, College Gear Friday, was a great success. Students not only noticed the staff attire, but the opportunity created conversations between staff and students about the college experience.
Some upcoming MELMAC funded events will be the Junior college exposure field trips this fall, and Sophomore college visit field trips this spring.
