Meet the 2015-16 GEAR UP Ky Students of the Year
This spring, each GEAR UP Kentucky (GUK) high school was asked to nominate one 2015-16 GEAR UP Student of the Year. To be chosen for this recognition, the nominee had to be identified by their GEAR UP College and Career Advisors as an emerging student leader with a record of consistent and engaged participation in GEAR UP activities in the school or community and good academic standing with no significant behavioral or attendance issues.

A celebration to recognize all 2016 GEAR UP Students of the Year across the state and kickoff the sixth and final year of the GUK project will be held during 2016 National GEAR UP Week, September 19-23, 2016. More details about this exciting statewide event will be available soon!
Each student of the year will receive a special graduation stole and certificate so that they may be recognized for this accomplishment in their own school and community. Video messages from each of our 2016 GEAR UP Student of the Year videos are also available on our YouTube channel and all of our Students of the Year will be featured in the September back-to-school edition of the GEAR UP Gazette.
