"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.
