    4. Senior Academic Signing Ceremony 

    Hello Seniors! The Senior Academic Signing Program has become a tradition at Liberty High School and is intended to recognize those students who receive academic scholarships and/or other merit-based awards to further their education. In a similar format as an athletic signing ceremony, this is a way to honor students for their achievements in academic and other non-athletic disciplines. This could include, performance and visual arts, debate and forensics, leadership, and service, as well as academic scholarships from colleges/universities or other organizations. This year’s ceremony will be held via Zoom on April 28th at 2:30 PM. Participation in this ceremony is voluntary. Students must submit an intent form by April 19th, 2021 to the Counseling Office. The intent form is available for pick up in the Counseling Office. Students are also responsible for securing a speaker to present on their behalf. If you have questions, please email Mrs. Duncan at nikki.duncan@lps53.org.
