SIMS Awards Grant to College Track

College Track check award
On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, SIMS Members presented a check to College Track Sacramento. The grant from our Community Assistance Fund will provide transportation for four high school students to volunteer as reading tutors at Ethel Philips Elementary School.
 
College Track recruits students from underserved communities and works continuously with them from the summer before ninth grade through college graduation. Its ten-year program removes the barriers that prevent students from earning their college degree by providing them with comprehensive academic support, leadership training, financial and college advising, and scholarships.
