I enjoyed speaking to students today about the importance of furthering their education at the KIPP Through College Fair, located at KIPP Collegiate Academy in Atlanta, GA!
KIPP does an excellent job preparing students for college by providing them with the right tools to succeed and thrive!
Students had the opportunity to attend helpful sessions from 12pm - 4pm and a college fair from 4pm - 6pm.
