Area high school students earn honor cords from MPCC

Honor cord.jpg

About 260 area high school seniors have earned the right to wear blue and gold honor cords from Mid-Plains Community College at their graduation ceremonies this spring. That's up from 225 students last year. 

To receive a cord, the seniors must have successfully completed 12 or more credit hours of dual enrollment classes through MPCC. The classes count for both high school and college credit. 

"The goal is to recognize students who have taken the initiative to pursue college credit while still in high school," said Becky Barner, MPCC area career coach. "National research has shown that when students graduate high school with college credit already achieved, they are more likely to go on to college and more likely to finish a degree program in college." 

The following list shows how many seniors, as of May 9, had earned honor cords at area schools this year.
