Story and portrait by Brandon Steinert
Barton student Zack Steffen, sophomore of Great Bend, managed to acquire 32 credit-hours of college coursework before graduating high school through dual credit.
He then began pursuit of an associate of science degree with an emphasis in engineering and will graduate in May.
He plans to attend Wichita State University in the fall to study Biomedical Engineering, which he hopes will prepare him to contribute to the field of prosthetics and the use of technology in medicine.
