Trine Middle College
ANGOLA, Ind. – An experienced teacher and alumna is leading Trine University’s growing Middle College, a program that allows students to earn college credit while still in high school, whether on Trine’s campus or in their high school classrooms.
Andrea DeLancey, who has worked in three of the four Steuben County schools, is looking forward to collaborating with area schools to give students a jump start on college.
“I am very excited to start my career as director of Middle College,” DeLancey said. “I am passionate about giving students extra opportunities that will help set them apart from a large applicant pool when they start the college application process.”
As a student at Tri-State (now Trine), DeLancey met with much success. She presented a workshop at the American Association for Health Physical Education Recreation and Dance conference in Indianapolis on disability awareness. In addition, she received the 2006 National Association for Sport and Physical Education Outstanding Major of the Year award in Salt Lake City, Utah.
After graduating in 2006, DeLancey immediately took a job as a physical and health education teacher for junior and high school students in Hamilton Community Schools. She also coached golf and volleyball and was the drama director.
She returned to her alma mater in 2010 to work as a student support specialist for Trine’s School of Professional Studies. DeLancey recruited students while networking in the Tri-State area, in an effort to build relationships with area employers and schools to find the current needs of local industry and business.
“We are excited to have Ms. DeLancey leading our Middle College team,” said David Wood, assistant vice president for academic planning and resources. “She is enthusiastic and respected among teachers at area schools. Her classroom experience lends itself to the continued success of this program, as she understands the need area high schools have to challenge their high-achieving students.”
