42 students graduate from college early

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) — The Capital Region Technical Early College (CRTEC) is a middle school high school program where students begin in grade 11 and exit after grade 13 with a college degree or certification.

The program is free and provides students with relevant professional experience. The program is the result of a partnership between the Clinton County Regional Education Service Agency (RESA) – Career Connections, Eaton Regional Education, and the Wilson Talent Center of the Ingham Middle School District ( ISD).

During 2020, 42 students completed their CRTEC programs and received their diplomas or certifications. To celebrate them, the CRTEC team created lawn signs for each student listing their name, degree they earned, and college they attended. They even went to their homes to display the panels. In addition, students were able to be celebrated in videos.

Margo Hazelman, Eaton RESA and Early College Curriculum Coordinator, has nothing but good things to say about the students.

“I really enjoyed helping all the students navigate the program. This year didn’t go as planned, but we got through it and these students should be proud to have completed the CRTEC program. Congratulations to the students and parents for their efforts, their perseverance in the courses and the program during a global pandemic and congratulations on their success,” said Hazelman.
