Meridian Technology Center will host a Signing Day event for incoming high school students on April 20.
Students accepted into one of the school’s career training programs will complete the final step of the admissions process when they sign a Letter of Intent to attend the school for the 2017-2018 school year during the Signing Day event.
“Similar to events that are associated with athletics, Signing Day activities will solidify the students’ commitment to Meridian as well as the school’s commitment to students and their families,” said Jeanie Zagar, Executive Director of Career Planning/Career Development. “It is a special day for everyone, and we are excited to recognize and celebrate each student’s acceptance into a program at Tech.”
Prior to the official Letter of Intent signing, students will have an opportunity to meet new classmates, visit with the instructor in the classroom and become familiar with plans for the 2017-2018 school year. Formal signing will take place by program in the Skywalk beginning at 6 pm and will occur every 20 minutes, with five signing sessions. Following each official signing, there will be an informal reception in The Terrace Café.
Family members and district high school representatives have been invited to celebrate and help welcome nearly 400 students who made the decision to combine career and technology education at Meridian with their high school experience.
