It was a special morning for many students at Lima Senior High School.

Graduating seniors who have committed to higher education or the military participated in the school's third annual academic signing event. The event's purpose is to celebrate students heading to college and the military, similar to how athletes hold special ceremonies when they sign their national letters of intent. Each student's name was read, along with the schools they will attend before they all signed individual ceremonial certificates together. Parents and some underclassmen attended the ceremony and those students who are graduating wore gear showing off the school they will be attending. It's a young event, but those involved say it goes a long way for everyone.

"The numbers have grown. Today we've had over one hundred kids sign on and we just really feel that we need to showcase them and also to make them role models for underclassmen and the kids coming in. They can see all of their names hanging, all of their signatures are hanging and then they know they can achieve their dreams as well," said Lima City Schools Superintendent, Jill Ackerman.

The half hour ceremony concluded with pictures and the students signing a large poster that will be hung up in the school.
