Preparing Students for Success After Graduation!

This school year, one of the ways HEF plans to expand the impact of our initiatives is by adding a second college and career center in Hillsborough County Public Schools to help students plan for their future.

We successfully launched our first Student Center for Postsecondary Exploration (SCOPE) at King High School last year, in partnership with Gopher Resource. Our goal is to secure additional funding support from the community and open a total of five more centers by 2026. Preparing tomorrow’s workforce in Tampa Bay starts today.

Learn more about our outstanding seniors in our August e-newsletter.
