Brantley gets jump on college life


A Farragut High School senior is getting a head-start on his college career thanks to Carson-Newman College’s Excel Program.

Joe Brantley, a rising senior at FHS, decided to take advantage of the program, which allows motivated high school students to take up to six hours of college courses before their senior years.


Excel participants must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher and the recommendations of teachers, principals or guidance counselors.

"Our program grants students the opportunity to earn college credit and it gives them a feel for the higher education environment," said Dr. Bernard Bull, who has directed the C-N effort since its 1984 inception. Participants have the opportunity to experience "college life" while living in residence halls and interacting with C-N faculty, students and administrators.
