Senior College Signing Day

Posted on: May 22, 2018

Finneytown Local Seniors Declare Colleges

and Thank Family, Friends, and Teachers

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. And you know what you know. You are the one who will decide where to go...”  said Dr. Seuss. Decide where to go they did as ten seniors at Finneytown Local Schools participated in a ceremony where they declared the colleges they will attend. College representatives from where they will be attending in the Fall, introduced and welcomed the students and brought collegiate gifts for them. Additionally, they spoke to those who have helped them along the way. The Seniors presented grateful speeches that honored and expressed appreciation to their families, friends, and special teachers. The speeches had unique metaphors, humorous anecdotes, and at times emotional moments. High school principals and counselors expressed pride and pure joy in the students’ academic and extracurricular achievements. “The class of 2018 has certainly exceeded anyone’s expectations. They are a compassionate, generous, humble, and thoughtful group of young men and women as was evidenced in our Top Ten at Academic Signing.  When I watch them, I know our world is in good hands- everything will be okay- because they have certainly brightened my world each day,” expressed Dr. Jen Dinan, Secondary Campus Principal.

See below some of the pictures from the event. There is more to come along some video of the students' speeches! Stay Tuned!
