Early College at Guilford Graduation Celebrates 46 Scholars

The Early College at Guilford’s graduation celebrated the accomplishments of its 46 students Thursday afternoon.

Graduates earned $8,300,000 in scholarship offers, including some of the most competitive in the nation: Park Scholarship, Duke Trinity Scholarship, Duke Robertson Scholarship, Wake Forest Gordon Scholarship, National Merit and more.

On top of challenging academics, 100 percent of graduates also received recognition for their community service, by earning either a service-learning certificate or diploma.

“We owe so much of our students’ success to the partnership between Guilford County Schools and Guilford College, which gives our young people room to stretch beyond the typical boundaries of high school, acquire new knowledge and begin to find their passion and purpose,”  said Linda Kidd, principal.

In total, GCS will graduate more than 5,600 students in 32 ceremonies between May 22 and June 12. Parents, families and friends can share their stories and photos of GCS graduates using the hashtag #SoartoGreatness2017.
