Topeka, Kan. – Together with other leading schools from around the nation, Washburn Tech is holding 
Virtual National Technical Letter of Intent Signing Day beginning at 10 a.m. on April 15, 2021. New 
students for the 2021-22 school year will be featured as they sign a letter of intent as part of a 
ceremony, similar to an athletic signing online.

     This national event sponsored by the National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3) mirrors the 
NCAA’s National Signing Day for athletes who commit to play sports in college. It is designed to 
honor students who are entering a technical field and to celebrate the dignity of work.

     More than 90 technical institutions across the country will be hosting signing day ceremonies tied 
together by live, nationwide simulcasts. Washburn Tech hosted the first signing day eight years 
ago.

     “By signing our incoming students to letters of intent, we’re telling them that we’ve reserved a 
place for them and we want them. Technical education will prepare them for a strong career,” said 
Gary Bayens, dean, Washburn Tech. “Industry leaders are excited about this opportunity because it 
validates the student and provides an opportunity for industry representatives to connect with 
future workers.”

     This year’s virtual event will be shown on Washburn Tech’s YouTube channel. In addition to student 
signings, the event will include addresses from university leadership as well we congratulatory 
messages from area business, industry and community leaders.

     Washburn Tech offers more than 30 career programs in one of five divisions: Construction, Health 
Care, Human Services, Technology and Transportation. Serving both high school and adult students, 
Washburn Tech is recognized as a leader in career and technical education.
