Seniors Sign Away
May 25, 2023
Senior signing day is a day where chosen seniors announce to the high school where they will be furthering their career in sports and academics. Fair Grove High School held their senior signing day on May 3rd, 2023.
There are a total of six seniors at Fair Grove that signed on senior signing day. Those seniors include Braden Booth (12), Jaelah Mcdannald (12), Kameron Green (12), Hannah Morris (12), Landon Taylor (12), and Garin Geitz (12).
Braden Booth led his team to win nationals and state in scholar bowl and will be furthering his education and scholar bowl/quiz bowl career at the University of Missouri. Booth states his reason for choosing Mizzou, “They have really good programs and are about the right distance from home. They also gave me a ton of money, which helped. They were honestly the easiest to deal with. They were great at answering questions and helping us at every step.”
Kameron Green is going to be attending MidAmerica Nazarene University to further her career in basketball. Green believes that MNU is the best fit for her because of how helpful the college was in finding a degree that suited her best and how good the coaches and team were to her. Green states, “I signed with MidAmerica Nazarene University, and I decided to attend MNU because they have great coaches and the basketball program works very well with the nursing program. MNU stuck out to me the most because they were the only school that understood that your future occupation is more important than 4 years of college sports. I also had a great time hanging out with the team and coaches who made me feel welcome.”
Landon Taylor will be attending Hannibal-LaGrange University. The reason he chose this college to further his academic and athletic career is because he loved the community and felt like they cared about their students. Taylor states, “I chose this school because I loved the community feel that it has and that they cared about the students and wanted to get to know everyone and help them succeed. I am excited to continue the sport that I love. I am also excited to make new friends that I can eventually call family and to have a different way of living. I have always been told that college is the best years of people’s lives and I hope that is the same for me.”
Hannah Morris is going to be attending North Oklahoma college. The reason that she gives for choosing this college over others is because it is a JUCO (junior college). Morris expresses, “Northern Oklahoma college for livestock judging. You only get one year of eligibility at a D1 school so I knew I wanted to go to a JUCO first, as NOC has a very competitive program. They just won a national championship at a junior college level. They have a very competitive program and I wanted to go somewhere that I would walk in and be challenged and work my way up. The coach as well has similar coaching qualities to coaches who have worked well with in the past so I knew that it was the spot for me.”
Fair Grove High School said bye to its seniors on May 11th, 2023. There are many seniors furthering their education after high school that were not mentioned.
