AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - As a way to honor all student achievement and success, Ascension Academy hosted its first-ever Academic Signing Event.
Ascension Academy's Head of Students William Summerhill said the event reflects the school's commitment to preparing students for the future.
"Education is what we put most of our energy into, preparing students to not only get into college, but to be ready to graduate with a college degree," said Summerhill.
He added that it's important that students know their work isn't going unnoticed.
According to Ascension Senior Jamie Smith, that work doesn't come easily.
"You have to keep up with homework, and it's not easy, especially here, to be a regular student," said Smith. "We have a lot of work that we have to do, so I do think it's important to highlight both groups equally."
The entire senior class made decisions to enroll at a college or university and signed academic letters of intent for the institution of their choice.
Ascension seniors will be committing to continue their education at schools such as Pepperdine University, Texas A&M University, University of Texas, University of Texas at Dallas, and Texas A&M University at Galveston.
