2013 Annual Senior Signing Day
Friday, April 19, 2013
Shady Oak Baptist Church

Greenville, SC 29611
The Urban League of the Upstate, Inc., with the support of the Greenville County School District, has hosted Senior Signing Day for over 12 years celebrating graduating seniors’ commitment to continue their education beyond high school. This program mimics Athlete’s Commitment Day when athletes commit to playing a sport for a particular college or university. With so much negative press on teens and their plights, we decided to start recognizing not only our student’s graduation from high school but their commitment to continue to pursue post secondary education.
Student attendees will also be those who have committed to serving in the Armed Forces upon graduation. Average attendance at this celebration has been about 250 seniors who have thoroughly enjoyed being called forward of the auditorium and signing letters of commitment to attend their respective colleges. Some college admissions representatives will be on hand to present small gifts to their incoming freshmen class. This year’s guest speaker is the interim President of South Carolina State University, Dr. Cynthia A. Warrick.
