Logan Perry, a member of the Class of 2018 at Edison High School, enrolled in the College Credit Plus program with two goals: save money and graduate from college early.
Logan will enroll in the Biochemistry program at Kent State University with 52 college credits that saves her family $26,000 in college tuition costs.
“The ability to complete college credit courses while in high school has saved me so much time and money,” Perry said. “I will get to graduate so much earlier than normal had I not taken CCP classes, saving me at least $10,000!”
Perry didn’t just study hard to earn college credits and save money on college tuition costs. She competed on the volleyball, basketball and track teams, was Vice President of National Beta Club, a member of Spanish Club, Prom Committee, Powder Puff football teams, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Media Communications and served as a delegate to Buckeye Girls State.
“This program (CCP) is only for those serious enough to appreciate it,” Logan said. “Colleges look at transcripts and this is a great highlight that sets Edison Wildcats above other college applicants.”
Edison High School students have the ability to complete college courses and accumulate large savings in college tuition costs thanks to a dedicated group of teachers who have earned the status of adjunct professor. Students never have to leave the campus to take these courses thanks to EHS teachers Dani Carroll, Diane Sokol, Jamie Evans, Bill Koehnlein, Angela Arbogast and Ellen Swickard.
“Thank you to all teachers who went back to school to save these students time and money in the future,” Perry said. “As a student who will be responsible for paying back what I owe, they took a huge weight off of my shoulders and only thought about what is best for Edison students!”
