DeSoto Independent School District hosted student-athletes and their families in celebration of the annual National Signing Day event.

This year’s class of DeSoto ISD student-athletes have announced commitments to colleges and universities like Baylor, Michigan, University of Houston, and Southern Methodist University among others.

The event is an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of our student-athletes and their families as they sign athletic scholarships to compete at some of the nation’s top colleges and universities—a testament to the caliber of athletic and academic experiences offered to DeSoto ISD scholars.
