City Council Donates to Homestead Senior High “Off to College" Program

Mayor Steven C. Bateman and members of the City of Homestead City Council contributed a $600 donation to Homestead Senior High School’s “Off to College” program. The program works with business partners and other contributors such as the Council, to provide graduates who are going to college with useful and cost saving gifts for their new academic journey.

On June 2nd at the “Off to College Night” event, graduates were recognized for their academic accomplishments and received gift bags with helpful items such as sheets and blankets, towels, flash drives, lamps and gift cards to be used for additional necessities such as food, laundry, school supplies and apparel.

The program actively encourages guides and counsels students to continue their education after high school. Seniors are assisted with completing college and financial aid applications, seeking scholarships and making additional preparations for college.class HSH
