Queen Anne’s County High School graduate Noah Frahm of Centreville was named Chesapeake College’s Outstanding Dual Enrollment Student for 2016.
Frahm graduated from high school in May with 54 college credits he earned through Chesapeake’s Dual Enrollment Program.
The Outstanding Dual Enrollment Student Award requirements include a high school counselor recommendation, a minimum GPA of 3.5, a minimum of three semesters of coursework and notable extracurricular activities.
“My eighth grade English teacher told us about Queen Anne’s County kid who graduated from Chesapeake at the same time he graduated from High School,” Frahm said. “I knew that I wanted to do Dual Enrollment as soon as I could.”
He holds a 3.5 grade point average at Chesapeake and will earn his Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts and Science this summer.
“Dual Enrollment was a great experience for me. I’d recommended it any high school student who wants a head start on college,” Frahm said, “I liked the professors and enjoyed being able to take classes that aren’t available at the high school level. Dual Enrollment also gave me the opportunity to meet new people of different ages and backgrounds.”
Frahm said his favorite Chesapeake class was Communications with Amber McGinnis.
“That class gave us public speaking experience, which I enjoyed. Its good skill to have and we the opportunity to really develop those skills,” Frahm said.
Frahm has performed numerous community hours through his church and played in a church basketball league. The high school student even became a certified math tutor at Chesapeake, helping students with challenging coursework.
Frahm will take his 54 credits to Wesley College in Delaware in the fall, where he will be a pre-dentistry major. He plans to earn a bachelor’s degree and go on to dental school.
He was selected participate in the “Dentistry Tomorrow” summer program at the University of Maryland.
