McKenzie Morrison has been involved in a wide array of activities during her time at Edison High School, including the College Credit Plus (CCP) program.
When she enrolls at Kent State University in the Nursing program, she will do so having earned 52 college credit hours that saves her family $26,000 in college tuition costs.
“I decided to take courses through the College Credit Plus program to save time and money,” Morrison said. “I also don’t have to take as many prerequisite courses at Kent State thanks to Edison High School and the teachers in the CCP program.”
Six teachers at Edison High School have expanded their expertise and earned the status of adjunct professor. Dani Carroll, Diane Sokol, Jamie Evans, Bill Koehnlein, Angela Arbogast and Ellen Swickard provide EHS students the ability to earn college credits without ever leaving the high school campus.
“Taking CCP courses prepared me for the next step in my educational journey by making me work hard and study for the grades I wanted to earn,” McKenzie said. “It has also given me a solid educational foundation for taking more advanced courses while I’m at Kent State.”
While education was important to McKenzie, she was also very involved in activities and athletics at EHS. She competed on the Wildcat volleyball, basketball, swimming and softball teams, was a member of the Beta, Spanish, Media and Calculus clubs and participated in Powder Puff football, the faculty basketball game, prom committee and Relay for Life.
“My advice to other students and parents about the CCP program at Edison is to take full advantage of the program because it will save you a lot of time and money,” Morrison said. “The College Credit Plus program and teachers at Edison have been amazing and done so much for me and my family. Thank you for this incredible opportunity Edison High School!”
