The gym at D’Iberville High School turned into a rousing celebration to honor college-bound seniors who are receiving academic scholarships. The school hosted its second annual Academic Scholarship Signing Day Friday, and the Mississippi Department of Education sent a videographer to the school to capture those exciting moments!

MDE produces monthly videos that showcase the great work of Mississippi schools. The agency learned about D’Iberville High’s Academic Signing Day back in March and decided the event deserved to be featured. The video will be shown at Mississippi State Board of Education meetings and shared on social media.

During the celebration, the seniors’ names were announced and they were welcomed by representatives of the college where they plan to attend. Some students even received personal video messages from university leaders! Students, parents and teachers cheered them on as they signed their certificates and placed them in a mailbox.

There were a total of 91 scholarships worth over $4.6 million!

D’Iberville High also recognized these top five seniors who received more than $200,000 in scholarship offers:

* Natalie King/Mississippi State University
* Carley Williams/University of Southern Mississippi
* Kameron Morgan/University of Mississippi
* Victoria Dickens/Millsaps College
* Kyle Winters/Millsaps College

Congratulations to all the scholarship recipients and the Class of 2017!!!
