Premont Superintendent Steve Van Matre challenged the district's students to follow in the footsteps of the graduating Class of 2017. On Thursday, May 25, the class sat together on the auditorium stage surrounded by their families to sign their letters of intent to attend an institute of higher education.
“I didn't start my journey with you, but what an honor it is to be your superintendent as you finish you k-12 journey...,” Van Matre said. “Today's about these seniors and this begins a very exciting week for you. Some words of wisdom – enjoy the last days you have at Premont High School, enjoy the conversations you have with your teachers, sport staff and administrators, and more importantly enjoy the time you have with each other.”
This is the district second annual college signing day.
“I'm proud to announce that all of our seniors at Premont Secondary School have chosen and have been accepted to either a university or college,” said Sharon Daniels, Premont Secondary School Counselor. “ We're very proud of our seniors accomplishments.
