Evera Spears, Monday, Feb. 25, 12 to 1 pm, Franklin Lobby 1 Conference Room

In her talk, Preparing Students for College, Admissions Coordinator Evera Spears provides tips for making sure college is in the future for your child. With more than 30 years of UC experience, 10 as UC Berkeley’s associate director of undergraduate admissions, Spears is also a UC alumna. She has two children, one enrolled in UC and the other who transferred from a historically black college/university into the California State University system. This event is co-sponsored by Education Partnerships and the Black Staff and Faculty Association. Light refreshments will be provided.

A department of Academic Affairs, Education Partnerships manages programs, initiatives and services that help produce high-quality teachers for California and prepare strong students for college and careers.

College Awareness Month was instituted in 2001 by an act of the state legislature to heighten awareness of college preparation among school children and their parents.
