University, school leaders join Early College High School ribbon-cutting ceremony

Local

Across the East, summer is winding down.

Students are returning to the classroom.

This includes the Early College High School at Pitt Community College.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place this morning. 

University and school leaders participated.

Students enrolled in the program received a first look at the new facility. 

“What a great opportunity for them to earn their high school diploma and their two-year degree in four to five years for free,” said Principal of Early College Wynn Wahittington.

“For me, it’s a great opportunity because no one in my family has been able to graduate from college,” said a student of Early College High School Nerikza Encarnacion.

The new facility replaces trailers designated as classrooms for three years.  

The Early College students began classes this week.
