Harper Creek senior Hailey Peguero to graduate high school with 36 college credits

Hailey Peguero

Kellogg Community College first profiled student Hailey Peguero as part of the College’s ongoing KCC Stories series back in 2017. Peguero, then a sophomore at Harper Creek High School, had already earned four college credits at KCC as a dual-enrolled high school student.

Today, Peguero, now a senior at Harper Creek, is on pace to graduate from high school with 36 college credits — making her a sophomore on day one when she begins her studies at Michigan State University this fall and most of her peers are freshman.

In 2017, Peguero said she saw dual enrolling as a way to get a jump on her future career working in the medical field, possibly as a nurse or even a doctor. Already planning out her next year as a nursing or pre-med major at MSU, she feels the same today.

“Looking back at KCC, and looking at it now, it’s helped me immensely,” Peguero said recently. “It put me so far ahead of the game. … I’m so excited and KCC has really helped jump-start my schooling and saved me lots of money!”
