Casino Donates Computers to GEAR UP

Gary, Ind., 3/14/03  -  Majestic Star Casino recently donated two Gateway computers to GEAR UP(Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) of Gary.

GEAR UP is a federally funded program awarded to the Gary Community School Corporation in 1999.
It's purpose is to increase the number of students in the underrepresented groups in post-secondary institutions to Gain Early Awareness and Readiness for undergraduate programs. An important part of preparing students for college is to get parents involved and informed.

GEAR UP's goal is to increase the number of parents participating in its parental component. The GEAR UP initiative is committed to providing parents with information on training to help develop family skills. The purpose is also to insure GEAR UP students have a better opportunity to excel academically, and to become productive, responsible and successful citizens.

"Majestic Star is committed to giving back to organizations such as GEAR UP," said Chareice White, community relations manager. "GEAR UP is a wonderful educational program in the Gary School system and Majestic Star proudly supports the initiatives of the program." As a part of GEAR UP, in 2002 the Freshman Academy at Lew Wallace High School participated in the Majestic Star Student Program.

MSSP was designed to help teachers motivate students toward progressive achievement. Students participated by setting academic, attendance, and community service goals and then strive to meet their goals. As part of its mission statement Majestic Star is committed to building good neighbor relations with its communities.
