Signing Day

Georgetown College Football signees 
On Friday, March 22 Scott County High School recognized two young men who accepted scholarships  to continue their education at Georgetown College and play football for the Georgetown Tigers.

Marine Corp Commitments 
At this same ceremony, Scott County High School decided to do something a little bit different.  Not only were students who received athletic and academic scholarships highlighted, students who have committed to serve in the armed services were also recognized.  During the ceremony, Mr. Howatt recognized 11 SCHS seniors who have signed up to serve in either the Marines, Army, Navy and Air Force.

Audience showing appreciation 
I am very proud of the seniors that have decided to serve their country and I am also very proud of Scott County High School for creating a ceremony to salute these 11 seniors.  Too often we forget the importance of all our student's contributions.  Taking the time today to salute the students that will serve in our military was just the right step in giving these young men and women the proper recognition.
