Sing, Sing, Sing: It could help you get to college

Posted By on Thu, May 1, 2014 at 11:31 AM

"Signing day," until relatively recent years, was a day on which schools showed off prize jocks who had signed college athletic scholarships. Little Rock and El Dorado and others now host signing days for academic scholarship winners. Today, North Little Rock has an even more harmonious touch.

A note from the NLR schools says that the North Little Rock High School Music Department will host a signing day ceremony for — drum roll — 15 students who've won music scholarships.

North Little Rock has a splendid arts program. I learned of it years ago from my own kids' experience watching professional quality work by NLR students in competitive staging of musicals.
