San Antonio College Signing Day

In the tradition of an NBA draft event and complete with a red carpet, the AT&T Center was the location for San Antonio’s first College Signing Day.

Generation TX San Antonio joined forces with San Antonio Education Partnership to host the city’s inaugural event. Complete with bands, a light show and the Spurs Coyote, Bexar County graduating seniors were treated like rock stars for their commitment to higher learning.

Major Julian Castro announced the College Signing Day in April as part of the City’s commitment to two SA2020 goals: to increase college enrollment and increase the number of overall college graduates.

The signing events allowed students to announce their college plans for Fall 2011 in front of their families, friends and community members. Students from 19 area high schools within nine school districts were in attendance, and 117 commitment letters were signed to various colleges and universities.
