Mary McDaniel is our Community Outreach Coordinator, her role is to assist in facilitating increased communication between home and school in regards to outside resources needed. Some of those resources may include food, clothes, housing, school supplies, vision care, transportation to school, and other necessities.

I love the dual enrollment program because it gives students opportunities to attend actual college classes and to prepare to be full-time college student. Plus, it’s free, which helps my parents a lot. When I graduate I will have my freshman year of college done for free, and I will definitely be prepared for college.
