Slaton High School honored 65 students in its graduating class of 2023 who are attending colleges, join the military or trade school signed letters of their intent to attend during Senior Signing Day May 9 at the Slaton High School gymnasium.
Assistant Principal Bo Medley thanked all who came to watch the seniors sign.
This included incoming freshmen.
SHS Counselor Louisa Gonzales also honored those mentors, counselors and recruiters who worked to help students get signed to a college. “They contact your kids, they contact me when they’re missing their transcript or missing scores, when they need to meet with the kids and when they need to sent commands to reach the kids… these guys are here,” she said.
“We might go give them a cool down because they’re here working hard for our kids so thank you for being here with us today. We’re glad you’re here to celebrate our seniors as they prepare to embark on a new journey.”
Each of the 65 signees had the same letter in front of them.
They stated the student pledged to attend the institution, trade school or military and represent their former high school to the best of their ability.
They also promised to become an effective mentor, finish their classes in a timely manner and promise to seek help when necessary as well as help others on their journey.
A list of those who signed to attend college, universities, technical school or are in the industry currently can be found in Thursday’s edition.
