1. Introduction

Dear GEAR UP/SMHS 2005 Alumni:

We hope that your years after high school have been peaceful and rewarding. A fundamental part of the GEAR UP program is tracking our graduates to follow their progress in education. GEAR UP/SMHS graduates are a vital element of our program and your continued participation is necessary to keep our program successful.

The survey will take under five minutes to complete. All responses will be treated confidentially and any information obtained will be used for academic and statistical purposes. The first 75 responses we receive online will be given a free movie ticket. There will also be a drawing for all surveys returned to us for four $50 Westfield Shopping Mall gift cards.

If you have any questions, please contact Alexa Megna or Cecilia Rocha at amegna@palomar.edu or 760-290-2785.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to hearing from you!
