Thoroughbred Academy

A new program at Trigg County will give a group of students the opportunity to get a college experience as well as college and high school credit. Trigg County Superintendent Travis Hamby says the Thoroughbred Academy is a partnership between Murray State and Trigg County Schools.

Hamby says they hope the classes will not only give students a leg up when they get to college but an idea of what to expect in a college level course.

The Rotary Club of Cadiz is paying for the courses. For the first year 17 juniors and 3 seniors have been chosen to participate. The idea is for students to be able to graduate high school with 24 college credit hours under their belt.
