Makayla Knapp did everything backwards—career offer, college graduation, then high school graduation—and yet it worked out perfectly. She began taking College Credit Plus classes her sophomore year of high school, working toward and associate degree from Northwest State.
With her passion for Minecraft and other programming platforms as her inspiration, Makayla focused on earning a degree in computer programming. While earning her degree, she was offered a full-time position at Spangler Candy Company in Bryan, where she started after graduating from NSCC in the spring of 2018. Just a short time later, she graduated from high school. Way to go, Makayla!
