On Friday, May 1, 2020, VIA Metropolitan Transit partners with the San Antonio Education Partnership, SA2020, and other local organizations to provide mobile hot spots at area high schools, so our community can access free WiFi and watch San Antonio’s first-ever Virtual College Signing Day from 5 – 7 p.m.
This service is part of the new VIA Cares initiative, an effort to connect our community by organizing available resources to help make ends meet for neighbors in need.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic with schools closed and large gatherings prohibited for the safety of our community, the Virtual College Signing Day will make it possible for San Antonians to participate safely through convenient online access. The event will feature more than 220 high school seniors who represent 42 area schools and are attending 65 different college/universities and enlisting in the military.
The complimentary VIA hot spots will be located in the parking lots of Kennedy, Memorial, Brackenridge, Burbank, Edison, Highlands, and Lanier High Schools.
This exciting unprecedented virtual event also will feature interviews with 20 students, prize giveaways, mascot cameos, musical performances, dance breaks, and surprise guests.
Fans are encouraged to wear their favorite college t-shirt to show their school spirit, snap a photo, and share online using #CollegeSigningDaySA and tune in to this special live stream event on Facebook or YouTube.
