Casey Glenn attended Bishop Dunne in 7th and 8th grade but decided to try out the new DeSoto Collegiate High School which opened three years ago, in her freshman year. She took as many dual credit courses as she could as a freshman, to earn an associate’s degree while still in high school, but something was missing: her Falcon family.
It didn’t take her a semester to realize that even though she was taking dual credit courses, her classes at Dunne were more academic. And she missed her friends and former teachers.
With one year under her belt, she returned to Bishop Dunne and registered for every dual credit course she could take as a sophomore. She did the same this, her junior year, and took a few online college courses from Mountain View College.
On May 11, 2016, she graduated with an associate’s degree in general studies. She could apply and go on to a university, but she plans to return in the fall to Dunne to complete her senior year because she is looking forward to more high school volleyball games and prom.
The youngest of five children in a blended family, she’s a member of Light of the World Church of Christ, and plans on attending Baylor University or Arcadia in Philadelphia to become a nurse anesthesiologist.
Casey gives her mom, Belinda, a lot of credit for her success in school. She knows that she’s in the right place now, back at Bishop Dunne, prepared to finish her high school career as she began it in middle school: as a proud Falcon.
