Christopher Martin, who will graduate simultaneously from Ankeny Centennial High School and Des Moines Area Community College this spring, is the first-ever high school student accepted into the
DMACC Honors Program and runs his own non-profit.
Dr. Laurie Linhart, DMACC Honors Program Director, said Martin, who was enrolled in DMACC classes, contacted her during the summer before his junior year requesting a face-to-face meeting to discuss applying to the DMACC Honors Program.
