Four Newcastle High School students have earned their high school diplomas, and their associate degrees from Eastern Wyoming College.

NHS students Alyssa Dawson, Sierra LaCroix, Kelsey Wood and Cassandra Munoz graduated.  Not just from NHS but also from EWC with High Distinction.  These students participated and took advantage of Concurrent and Dual enrollment courses.  Eligible NHS students may take college courses while still in high school.

“Many students take advantage of this opportunity to earn college credits and get a jump start on their college educations,” stated Mike Durfee, Associate Vice President for Outreach and Academic Services.  “Through extraordinary effort, energy, dedication and focus, all four of these students completed an Associate of Arts degree from EWC while engaged in their high schools studies.”

Ms. Dawson will be attending Laramie County Community College and will be going into their nursing program. Ms. LaCroix is planning on attending Black Hills State University for a double major of Photographic Communications and Education. Ms. Munoz is planning on attending Casper College to become a registered nurse and then onto the University of Wyoming for her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Ms. Wood is planning on going to college for Pre-Medicine and then onto medical school.
