AlamoPROMISE Information Sessions Launch At Phase I High Schools
October 7, 2019
Northeast Lakeview College kicked off the launch of AlamoPROMISE with a rousing celebration at Judson High School October 2. More than 700 Judson High School seniors in attendance learned how the Alamo Colleges District’s AlamoPROMISE program can provide them with last-dollar scholarship funding to attend any of the district’s colleges when they graduate in 2020.
They were encouraged to sign up for the program by the enthusiastic speakers at the event: Dr. Jeanette Ball, superintendent, Judson ISD; Dr. Veronica Garica, president, Northeast Lakeview College; Jesus Hernandez III, principal, Judson High School;Al Suarez, mayor, City of Converse; and Alamo Colleges District Board of Trustees Assistant Secretary Joe Jesse Sanchez. Applauding enthusiastically from the audience were Trustee Jose A. Macias, Jr. and Chancellor Dr. Mike Flores.
Adding to the festivities were bursts of confetti, a balloon drop and high energy performances by the high school drum line, mariachis and cheerleaders. At the end of the event, using a QR code, students then logged into the AlamoPROMISE website to “Save their Seat” and recited the AlamoPROMISE pledge, making a commitment to their future.
Also on October 2, Northwest Vista College held an AlamoPROMISE event at Holmes High school, featuring the district’s MobileGO Center. This was followed by an AlamoPROMISE event on October 4 at Southwest High School and one today at East Central High School, both hosted by Palo Alto College. Future events are planned at remaining Phase I high schools around the city.
