RPS 205 Students Attend 6th Annual Chicago Black College Expo

students at Chicago Black College Expo

As a Rockford native and Rockford Public Schools alumna, one of my passions is providing experiences and opportunities for our students.

Last month, a group of 85 RPS 205 juniors attended the 6th Annual Chicago Black College Expo through a partnership between RPS 205 and the Pi Gamma Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. This event at Chicago State University provided students the opportunity to meet with more than 40 colleges, earn on-the-spot admission, gain valuable information about financing their college education, and learn about scholarship opportunities.

We are proud to share that some students who attended the expo received early acceptances and scholarships! Students said this event was helpful in knowing the many opportunities available to them when planning for their senior year.
