Eight Lake Orion High School students achieved a dream Wednesday morning, when they signed a national letter-of-intent with their selected colleges.
The signing ceremony was held at the high school, prior to a late-start Wednesday, and the students had an array of guests from family members to teammates, summer coaches and even college coaches. Each student was introduced by the high school coach, who shared their accomplishments and a bit about the future.
The students will participate in five different sports at the college level, including Danielle Sargent, who was a volleyball player at Lake Orion but will be a rower at Michigan State.
Lake Orion will hold three signing ceremonies this year.
