Gallery: College Signing Day at Norwood High School


A group of 22 seniors signed their letter of intent to attend UC Blue Ash College as part of the College Signing Day Celebration held at Norwood High School on April 29.

Some of the students will attend UC Blue Ash through the GEAR UP Norwood Program that was established in 2014 thanks to the Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) grant.

The funding, which includes more than $1 million for scholarships over seven years, is through the U.S. Department of Education.

The program is coordinated through a collaboration between Norwood City Schools, UC Blue Ash College and the Cincinnati Youth Collaborative. The primary goals for GEAR UP are to help low-income and first-generation college students prepare for college and receive the support needed once they get there to achieve success and earn their degree.

We look forward to seeing the students at our college this fall.
