Sports Boosters to hold Signing Night

Sports cards were brought up, and soon agreed upon, as a great way to accomplish their goal. 

“The Spirit Committee is pleased to put 52 graduating seniors in the limelight on February 17th with our first event – Senior Signing Night,” said Cheri Anderson, head of the Spirit Committee and wife of Girls Soccer Coach Mark Anderson.
