Seniors throughout the county are getting ready to begin a new chapter.
This month, a Woodbridge sorority chapter is recognizing local graduates as they prepare for college.
The Omicron Chi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. is hosting a Virtual College Signing Day.
Scheduled for May 30, the event seeks to honor students — who will be joined by their parents, mentors and teachers — in a presentation via Zoom.
“We’re just trying to let students know that we are there to support them, and that … there’s so many opportunities out there for them — ‘cause sometimes they don’t know, they don’t know how to reach out for help and to get the guidance — and we just want to celebrate them,” College Target Chairman Marlene Coleman explained.
In addition to words of encouragement, the students are receiving a certificate letter from the sorority that highlights their enrollment in college and participation in the College Application Process (CAP).
CAP is offered by the sorority and falls under one of its initiatives — HBCUs for Life. HBCU stands for Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
Through the monthly CAP program, juniors and seniors learn about financial aid and applying for college. They also have an opportunity to participate in the HBCU College Fair as well as events on college campuses.
These are the students who are being recognized during the Virtual College Signing Day:
