D.C. high schoolers announce their college picks at third annual signing day
WASHINGTON (ABC7) —
It's kind of like a pep rally, not for a pending competition but for a major life choice.
D.C. high school students from public and private charter schools came together for a signing day, where unlike the traditional signing day for stand out athletes and their college choices -- this is all about academics.
"You have a whole city pulling for you," Mayor Muriel Bowser told the crowd of students. "I hope you know that."
Some students spent a lot of time making up their mind.
"I am going to Norwich University in Vermont," said high school senior Dakota Fluery. "It's the first ever military college in the United States."
Others just went with their gut. "I'm going to Morgan State University," Christian Sturdivant said. "Once I went to the campus, I realized how nice it was ... at that point, I realized that was the school I wanted to be at."
Each student may have made different decisions on which schools they plan to attend, but the goal is the same ... a good education.
