In recognition for their scholarly achievements and furthering their education, seniors and their families gathered in the gym for Academic Signing day.

The gym was filled with colorful balloons, school memorabilia, and excited seniors that were prepared to sign to their colleges of choice. The morning began with inspiring words from junior class President, Zac Aaron, and Vice President, Summer Clark. In their speeches, Aaron and Clark hoped to encourage the junior class to have more participants next year than the seniors did this year.

Following the opening speeches, counselors and the administrative staff called out the names of students and the colleges they plan to attend. Or for a few students, they called out the military branch they are planning to enter.

“I’m excited because, you know, I’m about to start life,” Alizana Cummings, senior said who is planning on going into the Navy.

Concluding the ceremony, principal, David Shedd, gave some wise words of advice and encouragement to the soon-to-be college freshman and military troops.

At the end of the ceremony, juniors that attended were invited to the floor to speak to the seniors about the college choice and ask any questions they may have had. With double the amount of participants from last year, Ola hopes to keep having these numbers go up in years to come.
