Graves High graduates senior Xavier Brickeen with highest honor, while he completes 2 years at WKU Gatton Academy

Xavier Brickeen, the son of David and Kim Brickeen, recently was graduated from Graves County High School in its Class of 2017 and simultaneously from the Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky. It is “the Commonwealth’s first high school for students interested in pursuing advanced careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics,” says the academy’s web site. “Instead of spending their junior and senior years in traditional high schools, our 160 students take all their coursework through Western Kentucky University with regularly-enrolled college students. The Gatton Academy empowers Kentucky’s exceptional young scientists and mathematicians to live and learn in an environment which offers advanced educational opportunities, while preparing them for leadership roles.” Brickeen now plans to complete a bachelor’s degree in biology at the University of Kentucky.
