Abby Johnson

Program: English

At 18, Abby Johnson has already accomplished many of her education goals. She has graduated from high school, earned an associate’s degree, and served as the CCC English Department’s first writer laureate. What’s next? Starting classes at OSU fall term as a junior.

Abby is one of a number of students who completed their associate’s degree at CCC while simultaneously fulfilling high school requirements.  “It's a great opportunity to get out into the world and see what college is like before transferring to a four-year school,” says Abby, who graduated from the Alliance Charter Academy on June 6 and from CCC a few days later.

Abby’s hard work will pay off in both financial terms – saving thousands of dollars on the cost of her college education – and in time to completion of her bachelor’s degree.

Abby also gained valuable experience at CCC as the English Department’s first writer laureate. She worked to promote writing and arts events, coordinated campus readings, and assisted with the college Writer’s Club.

Abby credits the advisers and instructors at CCC for helping her reach her goals, “The teachers at CCC challenge their students, but they really care about their success. I wouldn’t have done things any other way,” she said.
