On May 1, 2018, SHS held its inaugural Senior Signing Day. Senior Signing Day allows seniors an opportunity to be recognized for their admissions into college or branch of military. Students were able to sign a certificate with their chosen college or branch of military, in front of parents and classmates. SHS alumni and Mississippi State Women’s Basketball player, Blair Schaefer, spoke the event. SHS Principal, Sean McDonnall said, “For years, we have had athletic signings, and we decided to have a college signing for everyone who was attending a college.” McDonnall has been stressing to students to be college and career ready after high school. Senior Emily Cartwright told why Senior Signing Day was important to her. “Senior Signing Day made me feel as if my academics were just as important as anything that people go to college for, such as sports and talents. Being able to celebrate this accomplishment with my friends and family was such a great experience.” Cartwright plans on attending Mississippi State University this fall. SHS will hold its graduation ceremony on May 25, 2018.
