College? Yes! City organizes campaign to promote higher education

On October 26‐28, people across the city of Springfield will be sporting their college t-shirts and sweatshirts everywhere they go - at school, church, work, recreational events - as a way to promote higher education and talk about their college experiences with young people...how they got into college, what they studied (or wished they had!), and what it was like. It's all part of the College? Yes! campaign which also includes college information and readiness sessions for parents and students. SMI is facilitating the team leading the campaign.
