    Dual Credit classes for the fall semester begin on Monday, August 20th for English classes and Tuesday, August 21st for US History and Government classes on the Boswell High School campus.  First period classes begin before the regular day starts at 8:35 in the Social Studies hallway.  I will meet you by the small lecture hall.  Class rosters are still being finalized by TCC.  Please finalize your payment schedule with TCC in order to avoid being dropped from dual credit classes.
