Each of the students will receive money to allow them to participate in the dual-enrollment program at Chattahoochee Valley Community College. The students are taking high school courses that will count for college credit. One senior from Glenwood says the program will help her reach her career goals.

“I want to be a nurse and so the faster that I can get my degree, the faster I can go to work and help others,” Parker Rene Slappey told News 3.
