On Friday, April 27th, KIPP Eastern North Carolina celebrated its tenth annual Senior Signing Day at KIPP GCP Pride High School in Gaston. For the tenth year in a row, 100% of the senior class has been admitted to two or more four-year colleges. The Pride of 2018 has earned 415 college acceptances from 73 different colleges and universities. They have also earned over 3.6 million dollars in scholarships so far!
Each student declared the college he or she plans to attend at Senior Signing Day, in front of a gym full of students, families, and supporters. The announcements which are kept as a surprise until this moment, take on a variety of forms — from musical performance and original poems to videos, family dedications, and sports announcements. You can watch all of the action here!
