College Signing Day is part of Destination College, a week of events started by Mayor Julián Castro to celebrate San Antonio as both a college town and a college-going town. To celebrate their commitment to higher education, San Antonio residents show their support by wearing college apparel on Signing Day. (Watch a video of U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan attending a Signing Day in San Antonio.)


To inspire students across the country to consider applying to college, we’re encouraging journalists, celebrities, government officials, and YOU to wear college gear on Friday, May 2. It can be as simple as a hat, tie, sweatshirt, or socks – anything to help get the word out. We would be honored if you would join this effort and wear your college apparel on Friday and share photos on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, or any social media platform using the hashtag #ReachHigher.


In her remarks on Friday, the First Lady will highlight the significance of pursuing and completing some form of higher education and the importance of students doing their part to answer the President’s ‘North Star’ Education Goal that by the year 2020, America once again has the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.




First Lady Michelle Obama To Stop In San Antonio


First Lady Michelle Obama is expected to make a stop in the Alamo City this week to help promote higher education. On Friday, Obama will join Mayor Julián Castro for Destination College Week’s ‘College Signing Day,’ an event that allows high school seniors to publicly display their college or university plans. The mid-morning event is expected to draw more than 2,100 attendees. The week-long (free) citywide program is geared toward empowering children to seek higher ed opportunities and reminds the public SA is a prime spot for collegiate education in Texas, with around 150,000 students enrolled at area colleges or universities.

This marks College Week’s fourth annual event. Obama will be speaking at The University of Texas at San Antonio and is slated to discuss the administration’s “North Star” education plan (as she’s been doing recently) which aims to make the U.S. once again, have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by 2020.

  1. Love the two babies in the pictures, that is actually rather funny. As you always do, wonderful briefing. I think I get more from your briefing than I do anywhere else, places to go and the pathway to find the information I need. I am as always grateful.


      • The cold turned out to be the flu. I barely got the Reminder out and then posted on the blog. I’ve been wiped out. As usual I am trying to keep up. The good news for me is that since my return to the online groups, they have picked up and really working like a support group. Things I learned in my old group are helping other parents today and THAT makes me happy. After each group I get resources and send them out to the members who attended. This week I had another light bulb moment in which I will add those things to the online group blog. Last week I had created a page of tips to help folks get the most out of the group. My daughter co-facilitates the group with me and she is amazed to see how group works. (Member do not know we are related.) Now she can understand why I went for so long all those years ago. This is parents stretched to the max getting practical, in-the-moment help.

        I was up till after 4 a.m. and then up again at 6 a.m. so I need more rest. The flu was rough but not as bad it would have been if I did not get the flu shot.

        How are you today? I hope you are having good thoughts as well! Did you get the humidifier? I hope it helps with the eyes.😉 See you later!


      • Glad your groups are working to help others and glad you are getting healthy. You need more than 2 hours of sleep Jack. Be good and get 8 hours of sleep each 24 hour cycle please. The humidifier is on it’s way, I bought a brand new one on E-Bay.
