9 brave souls from Warden High School applied for and were accepted into the GEAR UP Ambassador Program. Starting in June, these 9 students attended a training at Moses Lake High School, where they learned what it took to be a GEAR UP ambassador. Following that training, students attended the August 5-7 training put on by the GEAR UP office in Tri-Cities. This training took place at Washington State University in Pullman, and students were able to learn more about networking, teambuilding, and even got to listen to an AWESOME speaker.
One of the ambassadors commented, "Being an ambassador is a much bigger responsibility than I thought it was going to be, but it is going to be fun, and I think we are going to make people excited to go to college." The first planning that the ambassadors have started working on is planning a fun and exciting GEAR UP week in September. Stay tuned to see more from your Warden High School GEAR UP Ambassadors!
