Seven Newport High School seniors were recognized Tuesday afternoon during a brief celebration at the school’s Boone Center, honing each one’s commitment to attend school and join (at least one) athletic program at the collegiate level.

Shelley Moore, NHS assistant principal and athletic director, told the group from experience — she played volleyball collegiately at Portland State — that the experience of playing college sports, an opportunity only 7 percent of students receive, builds lifelong friendships, and helps prepare student-athletes for real-world experiences.
