Mayor Frank Kuntz and Governor Jay Inslee last week officially proclaimed September 23-27 as GEAR UP Week in recognition of the contributions these programs have made to our community and state.

Created by Congress in 1998, GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programming) is a federal program funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The goal of the program is to significantly increase the number of low-income middle and high school students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education.
