GRADUATE TO EARN TWO DIPLOMAS
A contingent of local students will get two diplomas when they walk across the graduation stage Thursday. Rikki Bradley can’t wait to pick up her high school diploma and her associate degree. She and a dozen of her peers graduate Thursday from Gaston Early College High School, which meets on the campus of Gaston College in Dallas. Students there study five years in hopes of finishing with the dual diplomas. Bradley said she’s taken high school and college classes simultaneously. Her past year’s work focused more on college classes.
The best part? She’s earned her degree tuition free.
