A Message from Our Leadership

“This event symbolizes the collective effort and commitment of numerous stakeholders within our community. The support from our sponsors not only makes College Signing Day possible but also intensifies our ongoing efforts to ensure every student has access to education past high-school,” noted Eric Waldo, President and CEO of DC-CAP.

“The investment our partners are making to celebrate the academic achievement of DC students is invaluable for them and their families. It’s days like College Signing Day which uplift and inspire this generation and the next to achieve more than the generation behind them. It’s been my honor to serve as Chair of DC-CAP and contribute alongside these amazing partners who believe as strongly as I do in the power of education to change lives, change families and change communities.” added Ted Leonsis, Founder, Chairman, Managing Partner, and Chief
