Busy Edison senior makes time for college classes

Abigail Duvall, a member of the Class of 2018, has big goals and career aspirations when she enrolls at Ohio University in the fall.

One of the biggest goals she achieved as a Wildcat was earning 55 college credits and saving her family $27,500 in college tuition costs through the College Credit Plus (CCP) program. All of the credit hours Abigail earned were on the campus of Edison High School with her classroom teachers serving as adjunct professors.

“I decided to take CCP classes because I like to challenge myself and learn as much as possible,” she said. “CCP also cut years off my undergraduate studies.”

Abigail wasn’t just a dedicated student during her time as a Wildcat. She was a member of Beta Club, Spanish Club, National Honor Society, Media Club, Powder Puff team member and was a football, basketball and competition cheerleader.

“CCP courses have prepared me very well for the next step in my educational journey,” Duvall said. “The knowledge I have gained through my CCP courses is unbelievable.”

Edison High School is unique because all College Credit Plus program courses are taught on the high school campus. Edison staff members dedicated extra time to take coursework necessary to earn the status of an adjunct professor, allowing EHS students the opportunity to earn credits without ever leaving campus.

“I have become a more responsible student due to the assignments my CCP teachers have given me,” she said. “I have become a more responsible student thanks to my CCP teachers and being treated like a college student taught me to be a serious student and work as hard as possible.”
