Superintendent Roosevelt to be Honored at Region’s College Day Event

City School Superintendent Mark Roosevelt will receive a Leadership Achievement Award from Region F (Pittsburgh area) of the Act 101 Directors Association during the area’s annual Act 101 College Day. Dr. Judith Griggs, director of the Michael P. Weber Learning Skills Center at Duquesne, is chairwoman of Region F.

The Act 101 College Day event will allow more than 400 high school juniors and seniors to visit booths of participating Pittsburgh-area colleges and universities and learn about the state-mandated Act 101 programs that give a boost to students who might have cultural, economic or educational disadvantages.

At Duquesne, the Act 101 Program for Academic Excellence provides free academic support for students, including diagnostic testing, tutoring, academic planning and personal counseling. A residential summer program also helps students to strengthen their skills before they begin college.

Friday, April 27, 10 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.

Award presentation at 11 a.m.
