Director of Athletics Don Lang proudly announced that 12 North Shore High School senior athletes signed National Letters of Intent this spring.
A Letter of Intent is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an institution. Once signed, the institution agrees to provide that student with financial aid (if eligible under the NCAA rules) for one academic year in exchange for that student’s agreement to attend the institution for one academic year.
Additionally, all colleges and universities that participate in the National Letter of Intent program agree to not recruit these student-athletes once he or she signs the letter.
Congratulations go out to the following North Shore athletes who are featured with balloons and wearing clothing from the schools that they will be attending this fall:

High school principal Eric Contreras congratulated the seniors and reminded them of how proud we are of all of their accomplishments on and off the fields, track and courts.
“We will miss you and hope you will come back and visit next school year,” Contreras said.
All of the students along with their families expressed excitement and joy to achieve these Letters of Intent for all of their hard work and dedication.
At the National Letters of Intent ceremony, Lang praised these student-athletes while thanking their parents and encouraging all those in the audience to recognize and celebrate their tremendous success.
Congratulations to all and best of luck next year!
