Springfield GEAR UP Application Celebration

The GEAR UP program in Springfield, a project of MassEdCO, held a successful College Application Celebration on December 4 at Putnam Vocational Technical Academy.  More than 100 students, many low-income, first-generation college goers, submitted college applications with the help of volunteer counselors from eight colleges.  The event was covered by three television news stations.  Courtney Prendergast, a GEAR UP advisor, helped organize the event and was interviewed by Springfield stations WSHM-3, WGGB-40, and WWLP-22.
