Tomorrow is College Signing Day – a chance to celebrate students for making a commitment to higher education. Facing History and Ourselves is proud to support this exciting day for students all across the country as part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher Initiative. This movement is a way for educators, counselors, and parents to encourage those heading to college, and for students to inspire and encourage others, too.

Deciding where to go to college is exciting. It’s a major step toward a person’s future and it should feel like an epic occasion. Facing History and Reach Higher share a mission to empower U.S. high school students to create a better future for themselves and their communities.
