First Gentleman celebrates College Signing Day

DSC_0407This morning on The Rhode Show put your signature on the dotted line.

Gov. Gina Raimondo and First Gentleman Andy Moffit will celebrate the post-secondary plans of Rhode Island’s high school seniors by hosting College Signing Day. Reach Higher RI, led by the First Gentleman, is designed to rally behind students who are working to build the skills they need for jobs that pay.

Show your support by taking a photo in your college t-shirt and sharing it on social media with the hashtag #ReachHigherRI.

The national Reach Higher initiative, championed by First Lady Michelle Obama, inspires students to complete an education beyond high school. While College Signing Day is traditionally centered on student-athletes’ college choices, the White House has expanded the concept to include all high school students pursuing post-secondary education.

High schools across Rhode Island are participating in the effort to congratulate seniors on their college plans.
