Union County Early College has largest graduating class to date

“Graduates move your tassels to the right side. Faculty, friends, family, honored guests, it’s my pleasure to present to you the Union County Early College graduating class of 2015. Let the celebration begin.” These words, spoken Friday, May 8, by Union County Early College Principal Tim Conner, was followed by rousing cheers and graduation caps being tossed into the air, signifying the first 2015 Union County Public Schools graduating seniors to walk across a stage and begin life after high school. This year’s Early College graduating class is the largest in the school’s six-year history. Located on the South Piedmont Community College campus, Early College is a unique high school experience in that it normally lasts five years rather than four like most high schools. When seniors graduate, however, they have the opportunity to walk out the door with an associate’s degree. Of the 71 graduating seniors, 49 will receive associate’s degree. At left, `Aja Crayton, 17, who graduates with an associate’s degree of science, speaks to fellow students at the Early College graduation ceremony.
