Early College student, N’Kima Browning has been accepted into Harvard’s summer program.  It is a program, under the direction of AP Karen Bender, that allows high school students to take college courses which will then be transferred into college credits. Browning will be completing her classes online. The process of being accepted into the program required written essays, transcript, and teacher recommendations. To be apart of this program is a cost of $3,000, and Browning is grateful to be provided $2,850 in financial aide

“I’m really excited to be apart of this program. My mom motivates me the most,” said Browning.  “Without her, I wouldn’t even be in the program. She pushed me to be the best, motivated me, and always encouraged me; she is always there when I need her.”

Browning said she is optimistic and is determined to continue the Ivy League school pathway, and she hopes to be a high school drill team director or an analytical chemist.

“N’Kima is a wonderful example of what a Chapel Hill Collegiate Early College High School student is,” said Bender.  “She takes her academics seriously and has a focus and plan for her future. She took on the challenge of taking classes from Harvard University in her stride and I know she will be very successful this summer.  I couldn’t be prouder of her”.
