The 10 Early College ‘legacy class’ members graduating with their high schools this year all plan to attend college. And all 10 earned college credits through Georgia College during the junior and senior years of high school — ranging from eight credit hours to 26.
Of the original 55, the majority of their classmates returned to their home schools — Baldwin High School or Putnam County High School.
“These students have perseverance,” said Early College Principal Runee Sallad. “The students were determined to complete what they began five years ago, regardless of the many obstacles encountered along the way. We are extremely proud of them.”
