Elizabeth Bennett, Asa Stone, Carson Bennett and Marissa Juarez were presented with CNM candy dishes for their efforts. Prior to the fall term, the faculty members hosted 57 students from Amy Biehl High School who were registered for dual credit classes at CNM, which allow high school students to take college courses that count for both high school and college credit.

“We were talking one day and thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be good for dual credit students to know in advance of the first day of school what they should expect,’” said Bennett, who led the organization of the event.

The CNM faculty members gave the students tips for success and information on how to navigate CNM, followed by a question-and-answer period. The sessions wrapped up with a half-hour sample classroom activity to give the students an idea of what a college classroom is like.
