Students at Macon Early College are especially geared toward community service projects. While the unique school offers students the opportunity to get two free years of college education while still in high school, it does come with a cost, a cost the students don't mind at all.
Students at MEC are responsible for completing a number of community service hours as a way of paying it forward. "The students here are given the gift of a two year college education, so they look at community service projects as a way to give back and thank the community for making a difference in their lives," said MEC teacher Nancy Ritter.
