Students in High Tech High Media Arts in Liberty Station want to use proceeds from a nonprofit, student-run soap company to fund a four-day trip across California to visit eight different colleges.

“In the past, the (soap) company’s profits have sent kids to college on scholarships and even helped a student’s family whose apartment burned down,” said Jasmyn Meyer, a High Tech High junior.

Previously, Meyer noted her school funded the four-day trip across the state to visit colleges.

“But this year, the trip is no longer free,” said Meyer. “At my high school, more than half of the students qualify as economically disadvantaged.”

Meyer noted the student soap company “could be the ticket to revive our hopes for college.” She added, “You have to see the faces of determination and passion at our 'Soap For Hope' fundraiser,” details of which are forthcoming.

High Tech High students have an active fundraiser on Go Fund Me at gofundme.com/hthma-class-of-2019-college-trip. For information, email jasmynmeyer@gmail.com.
