On Saturday May 5, more than 4,000 students and parents descended upon the University of Southern California to participate in the Los Angeles Unified School District Family Summit 2012. This year’s event, “Make Me Proud: On the Road to College and Careers,” marked the first time that students were a part of the event, which aims to prepare families for the next journey into academia: college.
As presenting sponsor, Microsoft was honored to play a key role in the event and throughout the day, parents learned about ways to keep connected and students learned how to apply the technical acumen (that is so prevalent within today’s youth) to their future studies.
Our thanks to all the teachers, volunteers, college students, executives, board members and educators that made this year’s Family Summit possible. We look forward to hearing about the great accomplishments of the LAUSD students for years to come!
