Gordon Central High senior Deisy Najarro (seated, center) signed a soccer scholarship on Monday with Tennessee Temple (Chattanooga, Tenn.).

Najarro said of the signing: "This is something I've worked really hard to accomplish. I've always played soccer since I was young, and to be able to play in college is a dream come true. I couldn't have done it without the support of my family, coaches and teammates. When I visited Tennessee Temple, it was a very friendly atmosphere, and it just felt right."

Also attending the signing were: Mother Ingrid Ramirez (front row, from left), Tennessee Temple head coach Emmanuel Awotula, Gordon Central assistant principal Jeff Shattuck and Gordon Central head coach Grant Anderson.
