Expect More Tehama realized there were many wonderful programs in place, but often without adequate marketing or resources. Many segments of the community were isolated from each other. Here was a great opportunity to convene stakeholders and initiate some meaningful conversation. An annual summit provided that forum, and the fourth annual summit is set for November. At each gathering, the underlying question continues to be, "What can we do or put in place that will raise expectations and support youth in continuing their education and skills beyond high school?" Each forum includes education, business, government, faith based, service type organizations and more. "The summits allow us to tap into a powerful collective brain trust," said Kate Grissom, Director of Marketing at Rolling Hills Casino, an Expect More Leadership member and a parent. "The discussion and ideas fuel the energy and purpose that's been created." One goal was to make the map to college simple and clear for students and parents. Expect More Tehama was able to combine local resources to bring a single CollegeOPTIONS advisor to Tehama County. College OPTIONS, based in Shasta County, helps students and parents figure out their individual plan for college. Are students taking the right classes? Exploring options? Visiting campuses? Signing up for scholarships and making deadlines? Today they have a director and staff in Tehama County and provide support at middle and high schools throughout the county.
