FALLBROOK – GEAR UP (gaining early awareness and readiness for undergraduate programs), an early college intervention program currently serving seventh and eighth graders in Fallbrook, starts the year off with a WOW School Spirit event, WOW meaning Week of Welcome.

Over the next seven years, the GEAR UP grant-funded program through Palomar College will collaborate and team up with local schools to bring about a college going culture. This week was Club Rush Week at Potter Junior High. GEAR UP did lunch time activities and had the students learning about the program.
