Ladies First Mission:
Ladies First is a girls empowerment group at Daniel Webster Middle School, we meet weekly to empower and lift each other up.
We aspire to promote positivity, girls empowerment and college access within our community.
Many of our peers do not know about the opportunities available to them, we hope to bring these opportunities to Webster in a fun and exciting way!
We held our college fair on Thursday, April 6th 2017 on our campus in the courtyard.Our goal was to provide our peers with information around STEM and college access. We began planning for the fair back in December 2016, and worked with our school's principle, Mr. Benefiel, to establish the date of the event. Once we established a date, we conducted research to get the contact information of different college representatives. Over the course of four months, we made phone calls and sent e-mails to over 100 schools in an effort to recruit different colleges and increase attendance.
In the weeks leading up to the event we made weekly school-wide announcements over the school's P.A. system. CIS site director, Paola Schenkelberg, held a faculty meeting in order to coordinate with school staff for the event as well.
In addition, we also created banners for the event and informational posters to put around school in an effort to spread the word about the event. During the event, we took pictures in order to document the fair.
