Student Athletes Sign Scholarship Commitments to Compete at College Level

Student Athletes Sign Scholarship Commitments to Compete at College Level

Category : CCSD

Landon Ruzicka of Creekview HS prepares to sign with Quincy University in Illinois to play baseball.

Thirty-nine Cherokee County School District student-athletes were recognized in a ceremony Wednesday at the Northside Hospital Cherokee Conference Center in Canton for signing scholarship commitment letters to compete at the college level.

The event, sponsored by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Senior Series title sponsor Varsity Brands, is one of two signing ceremonies coordinated annually by CCSD’s Division of School Operations to recognize student athletes, along with their parents, coaches, athletic directors and principals, for making their college choices for a variety of sports.

These students join the 74 who were recognized in February on National Signing Day.

Dr. Brian Hightower congratulates athletes and their families.

This stellar group of athletes signed letters of intent to compete in basketball, baseball, football, lacrosse, soccer, cheer, swimming, cross country, track, tennis, golf, wrestling and, for the first time in CCSD athletic scholarships, cycling.

Photos of all the signees present for the program will be posted on the CCSD Facebook page.
