Durango High School National Letter of Intent (NLI) Signing
Durango will host two formal NLI ceremonies. The first will take place during the first week of February in alignment with the official National Letter of Intent Signing day. The second will take place in April prior to graduation. We will also set up a photo opportunity in November for students participating in the early signing day (there is no ceremony on this date) and will include that student in the February ceremony.
If you are a student who would like to take part in our NLI signing ceremony please review the following criteria:
Must be a current Durango High School Athlete in the program of your sport
Must have a coach speak on your behalf.
Your intended college destination must confirm your intention to attend and allotted spot on the athletic team
The athlete is responsible for communicating with the DHS coach AND athletic department at least 7 days prior to the NLI signing day
