A new tradition 

On Thursday afternoon Houlton High School held a Signing Day for their senior student-athletes who plan to take their talents to the collegiate level next fall. There were four student-athletes from Houlton that committed to attending programs at Maine colleges. Student-athletes and their parents were in attendance at the ceremony held at the high school.

Signing Day is the culmination of years of hard work in the classroom and in competition. These athletes have dedicated hours to their education and their sport, and signing day is a chance to recognize those accomplishments.
