AMARILLO -- Amarillo ISD high school students and their parents are invited to tonight event: Future Ready from 6 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. in the Amarillo Civic Center.
Future Ready is a new event sponsored by the school district to educate high school students and their families on college and career preparation. Jonathan Sprinkles, award winning speaker, will host the evening and mediate a panel of experts as they answer common questions asked while planning for college.
"The high school years go by fast and we want to prepare our students and families for the coming years. Jonathan Sprinkles and our expert panel will motivate everyone to focus on the future and take what interests them now to springboard them into college and career," Denise Blanchard, director of community partnerships, said.
Free tickets are still available at the event. Students may pick up a maximum of three tickets which will be used to gain entry into the event.
Two $1,000 scholarships, courtesy of the Amarillo Education Foundation, will be given away at the end of the evening. On the back of the tickets, fill-out the high school students name and place them into a drawing when entering the auditorium. Either the parent or student must be in attendance to receive the scholarship.
