Flowing Wells HS seniors honored

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Seventy five Flowing Wells High School seniors accepted into the University of Arizona will get a little more than just an acceptance letter in the mail.

This morning at 10 a.m., University of Arizona officials will congratulate them in person in a special ceremony at the high school's cafeteria.

Although the students have been accepted, not all have enrolled.

Catalina Carlos with the U of A Office of Admissions hopes this face-to-face ceremony helps the students decide to seal the deal and officially become a Wildcat! Officials say the goal is not only to get them to college, but also get them to graduate from college.

Flowing Wells staff say college is a big deal for these seniors because some of them might be the first in their family to seek a higher education. That impacts our community, because the more educated students are, the more educated the workforce will be.
