SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - It's Signing Day for Lincoln High School seniors.

In a first-ever ceremony for the school, college-bound seniors were honored for their hard work and accomplishments on campus Tuesday.

"It is to inspire underclassmen to aspire towards greatness like their senior counterparts," ASB advisor Malykke Bacon said in an email. "This ceremony is to celebrate these seniors and their accomplishments."

Principal Jose Sotoramos took the stage and congratulated seniors before several waves of students stepped on stage and signed their letters of acceptance.

Students like Jorge de la Cruz and Jhaunee Diggs plan to stay in-state. Cruz is heading to San Francisco State and become a politician one day. Diggs wants to return to San Diego after attending UC Davis to be a future pediatrician.

"We have many students doing the right thing every day. This ceremony gives them the opportunity to receive some shine," Bacon added.
