SAN FRANCISCO, April 28, 2010 – California State University (CSU) Chancellor Charles Reed, Mayor Gavin Newsom, SF State President Robert Corrigan, San Francisco Schools Superintendent Carlos Garcia and AT&T President California Ken McNeely will join students at James Lick Middle School on Tuesday, May 4 to lay out a road map for a successful future. Lick Middle School students will have a chance to board the 40-foot high-impact "wired" bus wrapped with the "Road to College: Get on Board" theme, complete with laptop computers with career exploration, academic preparation and financial aid planning information. A team of CSU students and CSU staff members will join the City's education leaders to assist students with exploring a variety of information. Students at each grade level will be exposed to the college preparation process by creating their own "roadmap" through an interactive experience on laptops. They will explore career interests and courses of study and what the CSU's different campuses offer. The CSU and AT&T Road to College Tour is financed by a $500,000 grant from AT&T to the CSU Foundation. The goals of the Road to College Tour are to support the CSU in its efforts to increase underserved student access to the university, and to help AT&T build a pipeline of future college-educated workforce professionals.
