NS High School Athletes Sign National Letters of Intent
Physical Education teachers Megan McCormack and Michele Cochrane proudly announced that more North Shore High School senior athletes signed National Letters of Intent (NLI) this Spring 2019. Seniors signed letters with colleges and/or universities earlier this Fall 2018 and now North Shore athletes have done it again! 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 NLI program agree to not recruit these student athletes once he or she signs the NLI.
Congratulations go out to the following North Shore athletes who are featured with balloons and wearing clothing with logos from the prestigious schools they will be attending next Fall 2019 including Florian Skulimowski (LIU Post –Soccer), Jaedon Seneca (Baruck - Soccer), Jack Rosencrans (Pomona College - Track), Taylor Berry (Farmingdale – Soccer), Donatella Tocco (Assumption College –Soccer), Amber Diaz (FIT –Volleyball), Dan Livoti (Hartwick - Football), David Parrett (Hartwick - Football),
Michael DerGarabedian (Univeristy of Michigan - Wrestling), and Sabrina Romano (Mount Saint Mary's – Volleyball).
All of the students along with their families expressed excitement and joy to achieve this impressive accomplishment for all of their hard work and dedication.
At the National Letter of Intent ceremony, Ms. McCormack 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!
