Celebrating High School Seniors "Stepping off to College"
Malone University, City of Canton partner to help Canton City Schools Class of 2019 high school seniors succeed in college.
A grant from the City of Canton allows Malone University and Canton City Schools McKinley High School and the Timken Early College High School Program to honor 34 graduating high school seniors who have attended the "Stepping Off to College" program at a celebratory banquet on May 15 from 5-7 p.m. in the Hoover Dining Commons of the Brehme Centennial Center on Malone University's campus. Canton City Mayor Thomas M. Bernabei and Canton City Council members will be in attendance.
Students who participated in "Stepping Off to College" will receive a tech package - including a laptop computer - and a clothing voucher in order to dress for success. Awarded students have attended three events this spring on Malone's campus in February, March, and April in order to be exceptionally prepared for their higher education careers, no matter where they will attend college. The program was led by Malone's Dean of Retention and Student Success Beth Clark-Thomas in partnership with Canton City Schools' College & Career Connector Casey Quinn as the high school liaison.
