Ten area high school students who graduated in spring 2017 are now college graduates.
The group attended the Northwoods Regional Technical Academy inside Wausaukee High School during their senior year.
At the academy, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) provides high school students from Crivitz, Pembine and Wausaukee the opportunity to complete more than half of the credits needed to receive a degree in welding when they graduated from high school.
The students graduated high school with  21 credits towards the 36 needed to receive a Welding Technical Diploma.
In the summer of 2017, just days after high school graduation, 10 students took the opportunity to complete their Welding degree at the NWTC Marinette campus.
The students taking part in this opportunity earned their degree a mere three months after they graduate from high school.
