It’s not often that a high school student will earn a college degree before receiving his/her high school diploma, but fifty area seniors are on track to do just that.

Earning your high school diploma may seem like a common accomplishment. The fact that such a high number of area high school students took advantage of being able to take college classes at no cost the same time as they were taking high school credits and earning their college degree or diploma is a huge accomplishment.

Through the high schools’ partnership agreements with MCC, the high schools pay the tuition and fees for college classes (at a reduced rate), which amounts to a savings of more than $13,000 for each of the students earning their Associate of Arts Degree.

GMG High School students that have earned their high school diploma and a degree from MCC include: Xander Bowers (Manufacturing Welding Practitioner Diploma); Zach Duncan (Manufacturing Welding Practitioner Diploma); Brayden Duden (Manufacturing Welding Practitioner Diploma); Kooper Gill (Manufacturing Welding Practitioner Diploma); Caiden Wobeter (Manufacturing Welding Practitioner Diploma); Brandon Zaldana (Manufacturing Welding Practitioner Diploma).
