Washburn alum Brooklyn Breckenridge earned a bachelor's just two years after graduating from high school thanks to CEP.

CEP kick-starts graduate's college career

Washburn graduate Brooklyn Breckenridge got a head start on her her college career in the Concurrent Enrollment Partnership. Brooklyn earned enough college credits in high school to allow her to earn a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice just two years after graduating from Washburn Rural. Brooklyn majored in Corrections and received a minor in Psychology at Washburn.

"Taking dual credit classes in high school jump-started my future," she said. "I am so blessed to have graduated high school with 27 college credits allowing me to save time and money once I reached college. The work you put in while in high school pays off in college."

Her degree at Washburn paid dividends almost immediately after graduation, as she began working for the Kansas Bureau of Investigation as a program consultant for the Kansas Incident Based Reporting Unit.
