Well here’s some good news:
High schools in Southern Colorado are getting ready for graduation. One Palmer High student is receiving special recognition. Brittney Exline, 15, is graduating from high school three years early. In the fall she’ll head to the University of Pennsylvania to study political science and chemical engineering. Brittney is the youngest African American female ever accepted to an Ivy League school.
The level-headed student is taking the changes in her life in stride, “Some people would think that being 15 and going off to college is a big deal, but I’ve been with my class here so long, I’m just as mature as any other senior who’s 18.”
Brittney will be recognized at a special presentation tonight at the District 11 administration building.
Congrats to Brittney!!!
