Lamar State College Orange (LSCO)’s Dean Suzonne Crockett congratulated the newly-selected Early College High School students at West Orange-Stark Middle School last week. This new cohort will begin the Early College High School program in the fall when they enter their freshman year at West Orange-Stark High School. The Early College High School Program enables students in 9th-12th grades to combine high school courses and college-level courses to earn an associate degree before they even graduate from high school.
Dr. Crockett spoke to the students about the rigors of the program and encouraged them to ask for help and study hard while working toward their degree. She and WOSMS Principal McGrew and WOCCISD School Board Member, Tricia Stroud, passed out LSCO Gator masks to the students to congratulate them on the achievement of being selected into the program.
