Registering HS Seniors thru April 15, 2020

Going off to college is an ACHIEVABLE GOAL that takes dedication and will to SUCCEED! It can also be daunting for some students. While students may dread college studies and transition outside of their parents’ homes, most are also worried if they’ll have enough printer paper, toilet tissue, and instant ramen noodles to make it through the semester. For graduating seniors, the strain of college life was made lighter with the support of AEYL and partnering businesses and agencies.

The 2nd Annual college trunk party is a recognition exhibition for the graduating students to be acknowledged for their accomplishments and celebrate with family and friends- receiving gifts, words of affirmation, and sound advice before they head off to college. It is a joyous time for all families, especially those families that lack the resources to fully fund their child’s college experience.

The college trunk party will be held in McKinney, Texas. Refreshments will be provided. The college trunk donations valued approx. $10,000 is sponsored by AEYL and Capital One and various local businesses for a day centered on providing resources that will help power students’ academic success.
