Northwest Mississippi Community College granted Associate Degrees to 11 Oxford High Scholastic Institute students.
The seniors completed the coursework as full-time college students while completing their high school graduation requirements and have been awarded $323,000 in scholarships to continue their college education.
Scholastic Institute students are full-time college students at Northwest Mississippi Community College. Courses are offered on the OHS campus, through NWCC’s e-learning platform, and face-to-face at NWCC’s Oxford campus.
During this week’s medal ceremony, NWMCC President Michael Heindl congratulated the students and Oxford High on “being a model for all school districts.” The Scholastic Institute is under the direction of Dr. Duncan Gray and Dr. Steve Hurdle.
“This program has seen tremendous growth due to the participants encouraging their peers,” said Gray said.
