Bridging the Gap for Graduating Seniors
At Cass Technical High School, many students’ goal is to matriculate to a four-year university or college. They have done the right thing by applying for scholarships and grants of which many have received thousands of dollars to help with the costs. They have done the right thing by securing internships and other employment opportunities to supplement their living expenses. The one thing that falls through the cracks many times is the initial funds needed to afford the necessities to start their college careers such as transportation, dorm room items, classroom supplies, computers and printing equipment, as well as toiletries and kitchen goods.
The "Bridging the Gap - Senior Open House" for Graduates Program links a sponsor (DPS staff member, parent, alumni, community and/or corporate partner) to a graduating Cass Tech senior. The graduate will be paired with his/her sponsor, and will have the opportunity to attend a "meet and greet" session at Cass Technical High School where they will receive items from their wish list. This event will mark the third Senior Open House and is tentatively scheduled for Friday, June 8, 2018, in the Media Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Triangle Society has become a sponsor for multiple students in this program this year and we are fundraising to purchase their wish list of items to help them transition from high school to college life. If you would like to support this cause please make your tax-deductible donation to The Triangle Society today.
