When Central Carolina Community College had an awards ceremony honoring some more of its best students recently, two outstanding Lee County Schools students were also recognized. Junior Payton Milikin and Senior Sarah Bogan, both Lee Early College students, joined more than 100 CCCC students on April 20 and received awards for their achievements in English and science, respectively.
Sarah Briggs is the youngest of five children. Two of her siblings attended college at N.C. State; the other two went to UNC. So when Briggs comes home from college for the holidays later this year, conversation around the dinner table might be interesting, to say the least. The Lee County High School senior will start college at Duke this fall. But that's not all. Briggs is going to Duke on a full scholarship through the B.N. Duke Scholarship program.
When summer rolls around, four rising seniors at Southern Lee High School won't be making trips to the beach, lounging by the pool or even working a summer job. Instead, they'll be – going back to school? That's right. Seventeen-year-olds Sarah Boone, Steven Herrera, Emma Langston, and Hunter Randolph, all juniors at Southern Lee, are giving up six weeks of their summer in June and July to attend North Carolina Governor's School on one of two North Carolina college campuses.
