Northwest Mississippi Community College awarded associate degrees to 11 students from Oxford High Scholastic Institute.

The seniors attended classes as full-time students while meeting high school graduation requirements and received $323,000 in scholarships to continue their college education.

During this week’s medal ceremony, NWMCC President Michael Heindl praised the students and Oxford High for “being a role model for all school districts.” The Scholastic Institute is under the direction of Dr. Duncan Gray and Dr. Steve Hurdle.
