Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) is bringing motivational speaker Aric Bostic to Bullhead City to share his influence with the community.

Parents of River Valley High School and Mohave High School students are invited to hear Bostic speak at parent assembly held at 6 p.m. on Aug. 4 in the auditorium at Mohave High School.

“Aric Bostic has motivated students, teachers and parents all over the United States,” said GEAR UP Coordinator Diane Beardsley. “The event is free for high school parents in our community, and we’d love to get as many parents as possible in to see him.”

According to his website, Bostic is a former teacher who “inspires educational audiences nationwide — having equipped more than a half a million people with energy and strategies to overcome personal challenges and achieve life-long goals. Aric fosters strong connections through targeted, high-energy keynotes, workshops and camps — reaching and training students, educators, parents and employees working to make a difference.”

Bostic will also be addressing student assemblies at both high schools and educators at a staff development day.

Arizona GEAR UP is an innovative college access program designed to significantly increase the number of students from low-income communities who stay in school and are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education.
