Fernley High School’s Class of 2017 will walk across the state to receive their high school diplomas Thursday night, but 10 of them already have their associates degrees in hand.
Western Nevada College’s 2017 Jump Start graduating class includes 89 students representing Churchill County, Dayton, Fernley, Pyramid Lake, Silver Stage and Virginia City high schools, as well as Oasis Academy and Nevada Virtual Academy. The group includes 10 graduates from Fernley High School and two from Pyramid Lake High School.
It’s by far the largest group of Jump Start graduates in the three-year history of the dual-credit program. These students graduate with their associate degrees prior to receiving their high school diplomas.
They were recognized during WNC’s commencement ceremony at Monday, May 22 at Marv Teixeira Pavilion in Carson City.
