(Franklin) — West Georgia Technical College Dual Enrollment students at the College’s Franklin Site were awarded cords to wear at their graduation from Heard County High School.

The cords are a way for those students to be recognized for completing college courses while still in high school.

“We congratulate these graduates on their achievement,” said West Georgia Technical College President Steve G. Daniel. “This accomplishment is a reflection of the dedication we as a College give to our students and I commend them on their hard work.”

Dual enrollment offers the opportunity for high school students to take college courses. The credits students earn at West Georgia Technical College also count towards their high school graduation requirements.

This school year, West Georgia Technical College Franklin Site had students complete college certificates in Welding, Cosmetology, and Nurse Aide. Some students also completed degree level core classes through the ACCEL program.

“West Georgia Technical College is very proud of the accomplishments of these students who have taken an extra step to get ahead in their college and career choices,” said Leigh Cunningham, West Georgia Technical College High School Coordinator.

West Georgia Technical College will continue to offer dual enrollment core classes, Nurse Aide, Welding, and Cosmetology at the Franklin Site.
