By all accounts this has been a challenging year for high school seniors. But Sage Pasquale of Holyoke ended the year on a high note. Pasquale not only graduated with a high school degree but also with an associate’s degree with high honors from Holyoke Community College. 

Pasquale was able to earn college credit from HCC as part of their dual enrollment program. Carolee McGrath spoke with Pasquale and Jena Cochran, the coordinator for the dual enrollment program at HCC, to find out more about the program.
