Madison Yearout is a high school senior at North Buncombe High school who has been dually enrolled at A-B Tech. She will graduate this year with an Associate Science degree a full month before graduating from high school. She did it within the standard four years of high school (instead of five years as in the average early college curriculum) as a dual enrolled student with the help of Dr. Fairley Pollock, Director of Educational Partnerships. Madison is ranked first in her graduating class at North Buncombe High School and will attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill this fall. She plans to apply to the school of Nursing in December. She is also a former Head Start child.
