Chisholm Trail High School hosted its inaugural Fine Arts Signing Day on Thursday morning, May 23, for 17 students who have signed intentions to continue in the Visual and Performing Arts in college.
As the students' names were announced, they came forward with their families and signed their names to a certificate.
EMS ISD Director of Fine Arts Shawn Bell started the ceremony with the following words, "These students have given their talent, creativity, and efforts to enrich the Fine Arts Programs at Chisholm Trail High School. As the students are called, they will come forward and commit their name to a document that is a symbolic representation of their achievement, their commitment to the Arts, and to the support that the Visual and Performing Arts receive throughout the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw School District."
