Seniors at Center Hill High School, who were offered a record $11,231,466 in scholarships, were treated to a College Signing Day in the gym on April 30.

“The purpose of this is to encourage students to continue their education and recognize our college bound seniors,” counselor Danielle Brown said.

Zavier Guy will attend Northwest Mississippi Community College, where he plans to major in criminal justice.

“I enjoyed the signing day event because I get to do something that’s never been done in my family, and that is going to college,” said Guy, who received a leadership scholarship from Northwest. “It feels good to be recognized. I really enjoyed it because my mom came to support me.”

Madison Brandon will major in business analytics at the University of Miami.

“It’s great that everyone gets to be recognized for the college they’re going to,” Brandon said. “I got their presidential scholarship and they have a really good school for my major.”

One of the 30 colleges represented at the event was the University of Mississippi.

“I think it’s great,” admissions counselor Neal Ann Chamblee said. “Ole Miss is excited to be here.”
