Bobcats graduate with college degrees in hand

May is a time to celebrate students’ academic achievements, and one group deserving of special recognition are the MHS Class of 2022 Bobcats who will graduate with both their high school diploma and a college degree, diploma, or certificate.

This year, 18 MHS dual graduates will walk across the stage at the 2022 MHS Commencement Ceremony on Sunday, May 29, including: Rochelle Avalos (Associate of Arts), Marcus Barker (Associate of Arts), Hunter Block (Fire Science certification through Kirkwood Community College), Uriel Botello (Certificate – Architecture, Construction, and Engineering Career Academy), Jackelyn Bravo Hernandez (Early Childhood: Child Development Certificate), Lilly Duff (Associate of Arts), Alivia Eaton (Associate of Arts), Brenna Hempy (Associate of Arts), Veronica Herrera (Associate of Arts), Zoe Johnson (Associate of Arts), Taylor Jones (Associate of Arts), Jonah Landas (Associate of Arts), Jose Manuel Vergara (Associate of Arts), Levi Ogston (Manufacturing Welding Practitioner Diploma), Alejandro Rivas Alanis (Associate of Arts), Erin Stanley (Associate of Arts), Cassidy Wedemeyer (Associate of Arts) and Paige Wertzberger (Early Childhood: Child Development Certificate).

Each year, hundreds of Bobcat students take advantage of the incredible, unique dual-credit opportunities available to them through the Marshalltown CSD’s partnership with Marshalltown Community College.

The cost of the college credits students earn is covered by MCSD, meaning they can get ahead of the game and be Bobcat Ready for life after high school.

As the 2021-22 school year winds down, please join us in celebrating these students’ hard work and wishing them the best as they look ahead to bright futures!
