A Dream Fulfilled For John Forman John Forman 85 year old Graduate

It was during World War II, that John Forman had to quit school in order to help support his Newport family.  Education was very important to John - especially receiving a diploma from Newport Schools.  John went on to earn his GED diploma, but always felt that the war cheated him out of receiving his high school diploma.  At the age of 85 and in poor health, John reached out to Newport Schools to see if it was possible to receive his diploma.  On December 13, a group of teachers and one administrator traveled to Middletown, OH to honor John with his high school diploma. Click here to watch a video of John Forman's Graduation Ceremony.

Each year, Gear Up proudly sponsors a Summer Academy for our students. This is a three-week residential summer enrichment program on a university campus, where students have a daily schedule of classes taught by college professors and experience life as a college student by staying in a campus dorm, eating in campus dining halls, and interacting with college staff and students. The goal of the program is to help students develop the skills needed for college & career success and create the opportunity to visualize themselves as a future college student. In addition to academic content, students will explore different career and college options, learn how to apply for college & financial aid, and get insight into life on a college campus. As you can see, this is a very exciting opportunity for our students!  Please encourage our students to apply.
