Dallas ISD senior student-athletes recognized at annual ceremony


About 100 Dallas ISD graduating seniors were recognized for committing to scholarship offers from colleges and universities to play sports at the district’s annual National Signing Day event.

The student-athletes were escorted to the stage by family, friends and coaches, where they shook hands with Superintendent Michael Hinojosa and Athletics Director Gil Garza.

The event, which was launched in 1999, featured student-athletes who have signed scholarships to play sports such as football, soccer, basketball and volleyball.

New this year, a Legacy Walk comprising Dallas ISD graduates who played sports in college – and some beyond college – started off the ceremony. Tim Brown, a Woodrow Wilson High School graduate who this year was inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, delivered a special video message of encouragement for the student-athletes.
