Support is both needed and critical for the continuation and growth of Goodrich’s Futures Fair partnership with P4K, UNO/CPACS and the community. Goodrich and P4K, with the assistance of CPACS and UNO, intend to continue to promote the accessibility of higher education to underserved middle school students through meaningful engagement that will create an immediate tangible opportunity for educational and employment exploration through the Futures Fair.
