HCHS student, Riddle, MSU Board of Regents speaker
As an exemplary dual-credit student who has taken full advantage of the opportunities afforded to her through Murray State University’s Racer Academy Program, Hickman County High School Senior Lexy Riddle was invited to speak at Friday’s Board of Regents meeting.
After hearing her moving speech delivered at this year’s Falcon Academy reception in January, word quickly spread about her inspiring story.
As a result, Dr. Tony Brannon encouraged Lexy to share her story with the MSU Board of Regents audience.
At the invitation of James T. Payne, Board of Regents member and Student Government Association President, Riddle gave a brief history of how she has been able to overcome some difficult personal and financial challenges to be able to obtain the impressive 44 college credit hours with which she will graduate in May.
Riddle reflected, “Without dual credit, I would not be attending college simply because of the price and my fear of going into debt. The rigor of these classes... has prepared me to take on future challenges.”
As a Commonwealth Honors Academy alumna and current Falcon Academy student, Riddle plans to attend Murray State University this fall and major in Agribusiness.
