Be the catalyst that opens the doors to the college/career world for Irving ISD students!

Irving ISD is currently seeking sponsors for 32 Irving ISD students to attend SMU’s College Summer Camp 2011 to be held this coming summer:

Date:   June 14 -18, 2011
Location:  SMU Dallas campus

About the Camp
Interested students apply for a slot to attend the five day camp that will inform, inspire and leave a positive impression in their minds about pursuing a college education.

During this camp, students will hear motivational speakers who have beat the odds and soared to heights they never imagined.  Workshops will be presented that will give them tools and knowledge that they will need to prepare themselves for college.  Topics will include college admission, financial aid, and more.  Students will meet hundreds of students from around the state.  They will live in college dorms to experience student life and will walk the university campus to familiarize them with college grounds.  All attendees will compete for $10,500 in scholarship funding as well.

After the camp, SMU staff will stay connected with the class and mentor them throughout their college years.  Can you ask for more?

How you can help
We invite you to be a part of this valuable program by sponsoring IISD’s 32 students this summer.  It will be a great investment in the future of our students!  For more information, contact Paula Barnhouse, Director of Academic & Career Counseling at 972-600-5025 or pbarnhouse@irvingisd.net.
