  • SENIORS!  Annual Student-Athlete College Commitment Ceremony: Any senior student athlete that intends to compete at the collegiate level next year may take part in our annual student-athlete college commitment ceremony on Wednesday May 16, 2018 at 12:10 pm in Muscatine Auditorium. Student-Athletes MUST meet the following criteria to be a part of the ceremony:
    • Must present documentation that you are playing for a collegiate institution (i.e a letter of intent from the school you are going to attend, something that states you are going to compete for a collegiate institution on official school letterhead). Documentation should be to the Activities office by 3pm on Friday, May 11th to be included in the ceremony.
    • Must have competed for Muscatine High School in the sport you are competing in at the collegiate institution if Muscatine offers that sport (i.e if you are swimming or playing softball collegiately, you must have competed for Muscatine and not just the club team. On the other hand, if you are going to college to compete on a Handball team, you may be in the ceremony because Muscatine does not compete in Handball or have a team.)
      This is an opportunity for us to recognize your excellence as a student athlete while at Muscatine High School, and to recognize you as compete at the next level.
