ST. PARIS - When Kaitlyn VanHoose graduates from Graham High School on May 31, she already will be a college graduate. Because of the school’s College Credit Plus program, which VanHoose entered when she was a sophomore, she graduated from Edison State Community College, Piqua, this month.
Beginning in the fall, VanHoose plans on continuing her education at Wittenberg University, Springfield, which has a pre-dental biology program, then going to Ohio State. Her older sister, Laryssa, is finishing her third year studying education at Wittenberg, and they plan to live together on campus.
Kaitlyn’s mother, Christina, is a waitress at the Farmer’s Daughter restaurant in Urbana and attends Edison State Community College part time to study nursing.
