College signing held for fine arts students

College signing held for fine arts students
Posted on 05/10/2019
Many people are familiar with the concept of an athletic signing. Donned in sports apparel and school colors in front of family and friends, college-bound athletes sign their letters of intent to play a sport at the collegiate level.

But this year, Arlington High School started a new tradition that takes the athletic signing format and applies it to the fine arts. On Thursday, nearly a dozen graduating seniors participated in the inaugural PAVE & Fine Arts Collegiate Signing. Dressed in their college shirts, the students were recognized for their high school accomplishments and impressive scholarship amounts. These students plan to major in some type of art, including visual arts, vocal and instrumental music, theatre, photography, film and video, or something similar.

The 11 students who participated in the signing have collected an impressive $7.1 million in scholarships alone, and that doesn't even include everyone in the fine arts department.
