Sixty-five students graduated from Lorain County Early College High School on Saturday, May 18 at Lorain County Community College. These students earned both their high school diplomas and their associate of arts degrees.

Thirty-three students have been accepted and plan to attend four-year universities following graduation. Twenty-six students will continue their education through programs at LCCC and The University Partnership. This is the sixth class of students to graduate from Lorain County Early College High School.

{mosimage}"LCCC has helped me get ahead in my education," said Aja Grooms of Avon. "As an Early College High School student I have learned how to manage my time along with better study habits, and how to stay focused on my school work. Thanks to LCCC I am two years ahead on my college education."

Grooms plans to continue on at Bowling Green State University and study pre-medicine with the hopes of going to medical school.

Early College High School is an opportunity for students entering the ninth grade to participate in a combined high school and college experience with the goal of earning a high school diploma and a college associate degree at the same time.

All courses are taught on the Lorain County Community College campus and are tuition-free. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Knowledge Works Foundation provided financial support to start the program.

"Early College High School increases the number of first-generation college graduates and equips them with the education and experience they’ll need to succeed in life," said Dianne Quinn, Early College High School principal.

"This opportunity gives me a great advantage over students just coming into college," said 18-year-old Amber Bell of Lorain. "Graduating with my high school diploma and associate degree not only is a huge accomplishment but it gives me a great deal of confidence."

Bell plans to continue on at LCCC and earn a dental hygiene degree.


Here is the complete list of 2013 Early College High School graduates:

Angelina Amador, Connor Anderson, Kyanna Barth, Joan Baughman, Amber Bell, Akoya Blake, Andre Boyd, Linda Bradshaw, Stephanie Burkhammer, Jamel Chaney, Aryel Clarke, Ebony Clayton, Selina Crum, Patricia Davis, Ginger Doll, Manuel Dominguez, Kyndra Downey, Julie Drwal, Brandon Eagle, Alyssa Entz, Matthew Fair, Alexis Fitzpatrick, Alexandra Fulton, Aja Grooms, Heather Grosswiler, Catherine Hatzigiannaki, Demarea Hill, Malcolm Howard, Kayla Johnson, Sierra Kershaw, Taylor Lawson, Austyn Lilly, Kiana Love, Lee Marcussen, Bianca McKinney, Megan Miller, Rachal Montgomery, Haley Morris, Jamie Neely, Gabrielle Ocasio, Kyera Overall, Brandi Patterson, Raul Perez, Brittany Pirl, Darren Polowy, Andrew Ralston, Destiny Reddick, Vanessa Reyes, Natalie Robertson, Tatijana Rodriguez, Kiara Ross, Leah Rumph, Nicole Schilling, Victoria Soewarna, Monica Stephens, Brittanie Strickland, Allison Sutorius, Malcolm Thomas, Tianna Thomas, Benjamin Tillman, Hector Toledo, Alexe Urban, Rafael Velazquez-Vazquez, Keith Williams and Sienna Wright.
