Communications Coordinator with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Sarah Potter, spoke with KMZU about the students and the program.

A statement issued by Missouri Commissioner of Education Margie Vandeven congratulated both students for their “hard work and success.”  She further added, “AP classes provide an opportunity for students to take rigorous college-level coursework while still in high school.”
