College Application Week
Like high school seniors across North Carolina, students in their final year with LCPS are taking a big step toward college during this, College Application Week. At Lenoir County Early College High School on Monday, seniors Nazir Sims and Gintiana Williams filled out college applications under the helpful eye of Keely Koonce, college liaison at Early College. More than 30 North Carolina colleges waive application and other fees for students who complete the process this week. Nazir applied to UNC-Wilmington, Barton College and Appalachian State; and Gintiana, to North Carolina Central, Winston-Salem State and North Carolina A&T. As Early College seniors, they expect to graduate in May with both a high school diploma and an associate degree from Lenoir Community College, putting them only two years away from a bachelor’s degree.
