Lincoln High School senior Tyler Kazda is on track to have 30 college credits when he graduates next spring — well on his way toward a technical diploma. Mary Mikeal, a senior at Two Rivers High School in a similar situation, is set to graduate with 30 Lakeshore Technical College credits toward a nursing associates degree program. The two students took full advantage of dual credit partnerships between local high schools and colleges, mainly the youth options and youth apprenticeship programs. Silver Lake College, LTC, and University of Wisconsin – Manitowoc participate in the programs. “The program allows students to take college credit while they are still high school students,” George Henze, assistant campus dean for student affairs at UW-Manitowoc, said. “The program is growing and I think a lot of students are looking to get ahead on their college education if it seems right for them.”
