DECATUR, Miss. (WTOK) - Freshmen students at Newton County High School stepped up to a challenge Tuesday morning.
Principal Shane Phillips addressed the group during a Commit to Graduate assembly and encouraged them to "sign it and mean it."
The signed banner will remain on the curved wall at the main entrance of the school until May 2022. The banner will be a focal point as these students enter the field graduation night in four years.
Students were given a “Ten Reasons to Graduate” handout to be placed in their binders for future reference.
