ASU Future Sun Devils Crew Visits Two PUHSD Schools for National College Signing Day

Posted by Community Relations on 4/27/2016

April 27 was National College Signing Day, and ASU’s Road Show went to four high schools, including two Phoenix Union Schools—Central and Bioscience.   The ASU Future Sun Devils crew came to school in an ASU double-decker set up a pop-up shop brought mascot Sparky, cheerleaders and ASU reps to celebrate the college-going students, who did not know about the event. Central invited 110 seniors to attend this surprise event where they received ASU swag bags and took pictures with Sparky. 

The high school takeover is part of College Signing Day, a national effort by Michelle Obama and the White House to encourage high schoolers to seek higher education opportunities.

“It’s really to celebrate students attending college every much in the same way athletes are supported when they sign with the college,” ASU’s Brad Baertsch said. “It’s to make a big deal out of this process for a wide majority of students that don’t necessarily have that experience.”
