May 1st was Signing Day for our seniors. The Agassi gym was packed with middle and high school students to witness the occasion. Each Senior declared what University/College they were planning on attending, as well as words of wisdom to the underclassmen. Most asked their peers to stay focused, study hard, enjoy Senior Year, and reminded them that GPA begins on day one of the 9th grade year. Some thanked their teachers that got them to this point our College Counselor, Mr. Herbie Walker for his guidance through this process.
Our Seniors were accepted to several amazing universities & colleges colleges including University of Maryland, at College Park, Baylor Universe, University of Rochester, Augsburg College, College of Saint Benedict, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Chapman University, University of San Diego, University of Nevada, Reno, Dixie State University, Virginia State University, College of Southern Nevada, Grambling University, University of Redlands, Concordia University at Irvine, Kentucky Wesleyan College, Southern Utah University, Texas Southern University & University of Western Alabama, Loyola University Chicago, Texas Christian University, St. Johns University, & Marquette University.
This year, we have two students, Kiahra Burns and Darayon Moore who won a full scholarship to Kentucky Wesleyan College from the Rodgers Foundation. And for the first time in Agassi Prep history Zeivaun Ned earned a full athletic scholarship to a Division 1 school.
Congratulations to the Class of 2017 on their many accomplishments.
