Salina Area Technical College is joining nearly 100 other technical colleges across the nation Feb. 20 in hosting an event to recognize and celebrate students who are entering the college in the fall of 2020.

The event, called National Technical Letter of Intent Signing Day, is similar to the signing days colleges have long hosted for incoming student-athletes. The event is designed to honor students who are entering a technical field, and to celebrate the dignity of work. It will start at 10 a.m. Feb. 20 in Building ‘A’ on the Salina Tech campus.

Incoming students are encouraged to bring family and friends to the event. Groups of incoming students will come to the front of the room to be recognized and seated, sign their letters of intent and receive a Salina Tech cap. Each student participating in Signing Day will receive a $250 scholarship redeemable in the fall semester of 2020.
