High School Students in Dallas Co. Earn Diplomas and Degrees
Dual enrollment programs high school students give a head start to a career by providing them with a short cut to a college degree.
Dallas County High School senior Walter Kendrick is on the road to becoming a mechanical engineer.
It’s a goal he’s close to reaching after taking college courses for the past three years in the Howard Hughes Medical Institute program at Wallace Community College Selma.
“When I saw that I can pass these classes, I know that if I can pass Calculus II as a junior, senior in high school, I know the course load of a mechanical engineer, I can accomplish that,” said Kendrick.
WCCS officials say the HHMI program was geared towards students interested in pursuing a career in the field of science.
