I really enjoy the smiles, hugs, and cheers that bring life to our commencement ceremonies each year. It’s hard to capture in words the energy that fills the air as we celebrate the success of our graduates. Our mid-year ceremony coming up on December 20 will be no exception. One of our graduates will walk the stage with an Associate Degree in Business Management just six months after graduating from high school.
Thanks to taking dual credit classes while attending Chilton High School, Macey Pingel was able to finish her college degree at FVTC just a semester later. Her great start in high school is a testament to the value of career pathway planning and dual enrollment – in both time and money. Here is a young woman well on her way to continuing her education and career opportunities with little or no debt six months after finishing high school. It’s quite remarkable for someone to attain both a high school diploma and college degree in the same year. Congratulations and all the best in 2020, Macey!
