Dear Lake County,

To help celebrate National College Signing Day – and the second anniversary of Reach Higher – I invite you to wear your college gear on Tuesday, April 26th.

And I want to see pictures of you, your family, and your friends representing your favorite college with the hashtag #ReachHigher!

We started this tradition in May 2014 when we launched our Reach Higher initiative to encourage students to complete their education beyond high school. People across the country helped us mark the first Signing Day by sporting their college apparel and sharing the importance of higher education on social media.

I am thrilled with all we’ve accomplished in the past two years, but I know there is still more work to be done. Through this initiative, we will continue to support this Administration’s North Star Goal of having the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by 2020, and I want everyone to get involved!

Be sure to tag our handles and use our hashtag #ReachHigher:

Thank you for helping us encourage our Nation's students. I can't wait to see (and retweet) your posts!
