Kennedy Dickerson, a senior at Centralia High School, has signed to continue her academic and golf career at North Central Missouri College (NCMC) in Trenton, Missouri.
Dickerson is excited about the opportunity.
“NCMC is small, welcoming and cost effective. I will be able to play golf while pursuing a medical laboratory technician degree,” said Dickerson.
Golf has become a special part of her life throughout high school.
“I have been working hard and improving every day. I am not ready to stop playing competitively. NCMC was welcoming and I am stoked to play there,” said Dickerson.
Dickerson shared her favorite memory from high school golf.
“My favorite high school golf memory was waiting for district results senior year. I was sitting pretty well as an individual, and the team had a chance to qualify. Someone was handwriting scores on the bracket in front of us and our chances of going to state were getting better and better. Once the results were final, I was an individual district runner up and the team placed second which qualified us for the state championship,” said Dickerson.
Dickerson, the daughter of Richard and Charla Dickerson, is planning to earn a medical laboratory technician degree at NCMC. After her two years in Trenton, Dickerson plans to transfer to the University of Missouri-Columbia to study biochemistry. She has two siblings, Kyland and Kyra, who both attend Missouri State University in Springfield.
