In North Tonawanda, high school students are laying out their plans after graduation.
They took part in National College Signing Day.
Counselors joined students as they signed the papers indicating the places they plan to attend in the fall.
Many will go to a college or university. Others will enter the military or a trade school.
High school seniors were encouraged to “reach higher” and proudly set their path for their future.
2019 Class President Ethan Clark said “It’s the future, and the future is sometimes a little scary, but this is a way to kind of appease that and make everyone look forward to it.”
Principal James Fisher said “We’re showcasing this. The kids are excited to tell others and show others what their plans are, and we’re excited to show that to our other students so they can be motivated again to follow through, work hard in the next few years to reach this point in their high school careers as well.”
This is the fourth year North Tonawanda High School has taken part in National Signing Day.
