CU becomes 6th school to offer Dual Credit at ACHS|
2013-08-29 - 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo CM staff photos.
Campbellsville University is the 6th Post Secondary School to offer Dual Credit at Adair County High School, with a course in Western Civilization this semester. CU joins Lindsey Wilson College, Western Kentucky University, and Somerset Community College. With Dual Credit Courses, students can earn college hours and high school credit in the same course. Center CU Vice President for Admissions and Student Services Dave Walters made the point that entering CU freshman often start with over a semester of college credits earned while in high School. Listening, left is Campbellsville University Admissions Counselor for Central Kentucky Lauren Goodin Willis, a graduate (2009 Salutorian) of Adair County High School and Campbellsville University, accompanied Vice President Walters to the meeting at Adair County School District's Board conference Room. At right Adair County School Superintendent Alan Reed said the initiative to add CU is part of an ongoing program to broaden opportunities for Adair County Students. He said that the effort is core to current trends to make Adair County students ready for the "13th Grade," to be Job Ready, and to cut the overall cost of education. "It's a goals-driven policy now," he said. "It's a students-first policy. It's no longer about Adair County Schools District's financial well being. Whether we handle GED on our campus or that's handled by SCC on Lindsey Wilson College's campus, is no longer the issue. It's about students. It's about their family's finances. It's about developing a productive Workforce and building a really prosperous economy." Also present for the negotiations, but who had another meeting to attend before photos taken, was Adair County Schools instructional Supervisor Phyllis Curry, who welcome CU's involvement. Curry said that World Language Programs are a focus now, and hoped CU could help in that area. She said that Adair County Student's will be offered Latin in a KET tele-course, something which Adair County Students haven't had available since the late Emma Woody's retirement, and before that, with teachers Hazel Kerbow and Frances Russell. - Ed Waggener
