WILMINGTON, NC - (WECT) - More than 1,300 students walked across the stage at UNCW on Saturday to graduate. Several of the students graduating are part of the first group of Isaac Bear Early College graduates to graduate from UNCW.

The program was created in 2006, and allows students to start taking college classes, while they are completing high school.

 

Kori Deschamps, is the first Isaac Bear graduate, to graduate from the Cameron School of Business. She was able to graduate Saturday at age 20.

Deschamps says it is great to know that she helped to pave the way for future Isaac Bear graduates.

"Someone had to do it and its kind of an awesome program because the program keeps getting bigger every year," said Deschamps.

 

"I can remember when the program first started, no one knew how it would work out," said David Cordle, the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. "We were bringing high school students into our mist here, and we wondered how that would work out but I have to say its been better than anyone could have imagined."
