Meeting of April 21: Gary Smiga, of College Promise, was the speaker at the meeting. The mission of The Montgomery County Ohio College Promise is to identify, select and support up to 500 poverty impacted, eighth grade students within the next 10 years that have shown academic promise so that the dream of attending and graduating from college becomes a reality. Each student has a mentor to meet with on a weekly basis for support during their high school years. Upon completion of high school and the meeting of the entrance requirements of the partner colleges, the student will be awarded scholarships that allow them to attain a college degree at little or no cost to them or their families. The program requires pledges from the students to adhere to the standards of the program, and pledges from the parents to provide a supportive home environment and attend parent teacher conferences.
