Matthew Wintz graduated with an associate’s degree three weeks before his high school graduation. He is the first student to complete the required coursework for an Associates degree before graduation from Paris High School.
According to PHS Principal Chris Vaughn, “Matthew Wintz began taking online courses at Paris Junior College in the spring of 2016, his sophomore year. He continued to take classes during the next two summers, dual credit courses at PHS, and online courses during fall and spring semesters.
“He completed the required coursework and received an Associates of Science in General Studies at the May 11, 2018, Paris Junior College graduation ceremony. He is to be commended for his diligence in achieving this significant accomplishment.”
