Registration/check-in will begin at 7:45AM. Please check-in at the registration tables when you first arrive. You will need to show your photo ID to receive your walk number. College students will need to show their school ID. Once you have your number, you will be able to get breakfast and participate in activities that will be underway. Buzz and the Falcons cheerleaders will be there to greet you. Ambassador Andrew Young will also be talking to the group before the walk. And, as always, there will be a group exercises to get you warmed up for the walk and the day – so don’t be late! The walk will start promptly at 9:00AM.
Sessions for participants will begin at 10:15am. There will be separate sessions for younger students and adults. Topics for students will range from college prep, job interview skills, financial literacy, and a day in the life of a college student.
Adult sessions are designed for parents and adults on a variety of topics in education. Individuals will participate in a discussion about education and will also hear comments from a panel including DeKalb Superintendent Michael Thurmond, Mrs. Carolyn Young, and leaders from academic, corporate, and civic organizations.
We ask that teachers and parents accompanying students attend the adult sessions to allow younger students time to learn in the small group coaching sessions.
