For now, he is getting a head start on collegiate courses.


“I go to MCC to take classes to prepare me for an upper college.” Said Prince Kelly Northeast High graduate.

Once admitted into the University of his choice, he already knows what he will majoring in.


“Computer engineering, or more specifically aerospace engineering” Said Prince Kelly Northeast High graduate.


Kelly says he is thankful for the dedication of teachers that coached him on the ACT.


“Every single day, I’m tutoring children in the mornings for ACT, I stay after school for ACT, I gave up my planning period the first semester of school for ACT prep, it is very important to me." Said Cynthia Taylor teacher at Northeast High.


Kelly also says he can’t wait to start college so he can finish and start his dream career.
