Several students accomplished a demanding feat by obtaining Early Medical School Acceptance: Olivia Abney, Sohail Baig, Sarah Broyles, Shaivi Pandey, Bryan Keith Preer, Neha Singhal, Shreya Sunil, Lindsey Tucker, Ke’aundra Walton and Jaxon Yamaguchi.

These students succeeded with early acceptance to medical school at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the University of South Alabama. Mississippi State University granted early acceptance to its veterinarian school.

Students with early acceptance for nursing will attend UAB, Troy University and University of North Alabama. “We are very proud of these students’ accomplishments, and wish them the best of luck,” Steinert said.

“This is a school record as we have never had more than two students accepted per year for medical school early acceptance. In addition, this is the second student in school history to receive early vet school acceptance,” Steinert said.
