Lebanon High School GEAR UP Coordinator Wendy Eilers (top row, second from left) spearheaded a social media campaign with messages for the graduating class of 2020 from teachers and staff.

In addition to providing meals, technology, and instructional resources to students and families, GEAR UP schools are virtually maintaining relationships, building college-going cultures, and supporting students' postsecondary plans.

Our school has been incredibly proactive with making sure students are fed, classes are ongoing, virtual check ins throughout. It has been amazing!! Everyone is so incredibly grateful we were already set up with 1:1 technology from 6th-12th grade. This would not have been possible without GEAR UP!
