At a recently held school board meeting, the Saint Jo ISD School Board honored the landmark dual degree accomplishment of senior students Logan Morman and Cody Thurman. These two students have earned their Associate’s degrees from North Central Texas College (NCTC), as well as their high school diploma from Saint Jo ISD. While maintaining a full course load at SJHS and being involved in school activities, Logan earned 61 hours of college credit and Cody earned 64 hours of college credit. Both students plan to attend Texas Tech University in the Fall of 2020.
The dual credit partnership between Saint Jo ISD and NCTC began 12 years ago with a limited number of classes being offered and has grown exponentially to what it is today. Logan and Cody have accomplished what Saint Jo ISD and NCTC outlined as a vision for the future of dual credit by earning an Associate’s degree while attending high school.
“Our school district cannot be more thankful for the partnership with NCTC, as well as the tremendous financial support of our Saint Jo ISD Education Foundation,” stated SJISD Superintendent Curtis Eldridge. The Saint Jo ISD Education Foundation has assisted in the dual credit funding of core courses required of a high school diploma. The tuition assistance provided by the Foundation is a result of the gracious donations of the many local, regional and state contributors. During the 2019-2020 school year, students at Saint Jo ISD have earned an astounding 241 hours of college credit. Congratulations Logan and Cody, and thank you for paving the way for future dual credit students at Saint Jo High School.
