Sumner County Middle College High School students were finally able to gather for a graduation ceremony at Volunteer State Community College Saturday. The event was held with appropriate COVID-19 precautions. It was the largest graduating class ever for the Middle College with forty-five students awarded high school diplomas. Thirty-one of those students also received associate degrees from Vol State during the college virtual ceremony in May. Middle College High School students take Vol State classes, earning high school and college credit at the same time. It allows students to get a jump start on their college career, entering a university with many college credits.
Several of the students made the spring Dean’s List at Vol State and participated in the Phi Theta Kappa honors program and TN Scholar Program. The Middle College is still accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year. Visit www.volstate.edu/middlecollege for more information.
