Students in WV GEAR UP schools can join the HEROs (Higher Education Readiness Officers). HEROs help their school, their classmates and their community to dream big and get ready for college. They organize events to help others learn about their options for college, support their teachers by helping with GEAR UP events, and rally their communities to help everyone have a chance to succeed in completing education and training beyond high school.
Want to get involved?
Being a HERO is a big commitment, (you have to seriously get involved and help out) but it also comes with some great perks. HEROs get to step up and be a leader in their schools by organizing events for their classmates, teachers and community. HEROs also have a voice in the activities GEAR UP plans, and they get to participate in the statewide college access movement. And of course, as a thanks for their hard work, HEROs often get free GEAR UP gear — like t-shirts and backpacks. You can sign up to be a HERO anytime throughout the year, but you have to be a member before November 15 of each school year in order to get the free swag (t-shirts, etc.).
