The NCAA has times throughout the year that high school seniors can sign national letters of intent to make the student-athletes college choices official.
During those times, high schools hold signing ceremonies to honor those student-athletes in front of family, and friends.
This spring schools across the nation and state weren't able to hold those ceremonies to honor there students and Shakopee was no different.
The Shakopee activities department of director Matt Hanson, activities secretary Chrissy Shoemaker and assistant Haley Altringer came up with the idea to make a video to showcase the 20 Shakopee seniors that would have been part of a signing ceremony this spring.
Here is the list of the 20 Shakopee seniors that signed this spring but couldn't get together for a ceremony: (name, sport, college)
- Lauren Aus - volleyball - University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire
