Kirkwood High School Celebrates 29 Seniors Signing Athletic National Letters of Intent

During a ceremony on Thursday, February 8, Kirkwood High School (KHS) recognized 29 student athletes who are continuing their education at various institutions across the country. All students were recognized by KHS principal Dr. Seth Harrell, senior class principal, Dr. Josh Flores, and KHS athletic director Corey Nesslage. Students then participated in a ceremonial letter of intent signing.

 

“Your hard work and dedication have put you in a position to make this moment possible,” said Harrell. “Keep up that physical and mental toughness that you’ve developed as a student athlete, and you will be successful.” Nesslage commended the 29 students on their perseverance. “You’ve put in sweat, work and tears to get here today. You’ve displayed excellence on the courts, fields, track and pools, as well as in the classroom to get to this point. Thank you for your outstanding efforts and we appreciate the way you’ve displayed yourselves.”

 

Both Harrell and Nesslage encouraged the student athletes to thank their families. “It takes a lot of dedication as a family to get our students athletes to this point,” said Harrell. “Make sure you say thank you to your families, coaches, teachers and community who’ve helped you get here today.”
