Mt. Vernon Rams become Warriors at College Signing event

College Signing 2019 Mt. Vernon web

MT. VERNON, Ill. (May 5, 2019) — Mt. Vernon Township High School seniors enrolled at Rend Lake College last week during one of RLC's College Signing events. Many of these students have already taken advantage of The Lake's free Dual Credit program, saving themselves and their families tens of thousands in college costs. By choosing to continue their education in one of more than 100 degree or certificate programs at RLC, these students will save around $18,000 a year in tuition and fees — when compared to the average cost of a public university.

Students pictured are (FIRST ROW, FROM LEFT) Ethan Bevis, Alexis McKinney and Trey Maxedon. (SECOND ROW, FROM LEFT) Gracie Stover, David Gove, Hailey Mays, Madisyn McCulley, Ashton McPherson, Kayla Upton, Katelyn Carter and Jacob Kueker. (THIRD ROW, FROM LEFT) Ajurney Lesure, Ethan Watson, Casey White, Abigail Ellis, Thad Zedalis, Pacey Reynolds, Lilly Dycus, Caitlyn McDannel, Trent Smith and Zain Radke.
