Cords for Athletes
I'm currently a student-athlete at Bayside High School. I started this petition for the intention of getting these cords just for Bayside, but as the response to this idea grew, so did the boundaries. As of now, I am fighting to get theses student-athletes all across Brevard County to be recognized at graduation.
This petition is to try and get 2, 3, and 4 year varsity players, cords when they graduate. Students get recognized and awarded with cords for outstanding academic achievement, but what about those of us who spend countless hours everyday after school chasing after the sport of their dreams? We should get our recognition. We work day in and day out, in the classroom and on the fields/court. Everyday we spend time playing the game we love, whether it be football, basketball, softball, baseball, soccer, etc. As an upcoming 4 year varsity letterman of 2 sports I would love to be recognized for my accomplishments. But more importantly, I would love to see my fellow classmates and those to follow walk across that stage with their head held high flashing their cords.
Let's see if we can make this a possiblilty for the class of 2017 and those to come after us. I need your help and support!
