Dynamic duo learns double at Levine Middle College High

Known as a dynamic duo, Levine Middle College High’s August Warren and Morgan Tuttle became friends after meeting online during virtual instruction. The pair shared ideas about potential activities for students and their interest in student government, eventually ending up as co-student government presidents for their senior year. 


Before achieving that milestone together, the duo also secured their associate degrees while working on their high school diplomas. Through the programs offered at Levine Middle College High in conjunction with Central Piedmont Community College, both students doubled up on classes to secure their degrees and walk across the stage a step ahead. 


Tuttle is a selfless student, choosing to serve her fellow students and derive her own joy out of that servitude. “My favorite part about my senior year is being president is that we meet everybody and we get to make the student body happy, as well as ourselves,” she said. 


For example, the two planned events like games on the campus lawn so students could comfortably distance and unmask during the uncertainty of returning to in-person learning. “I took 17 classes last year,” she said. “It was worth it.” 


She also got to spend extra time with her mother, a teacher at Levine Middle College High with more than two decades in the CMS system. 


Staying focused throughout the pandemic was a challenge, but Tuttle met it head on and is looking forward to her schedule as a college junior next fall at Winston-Salem State. 


For Warren, Levine Middle College High has been a great experience.”I have loved it every second,” he said. “I have absolutely adored being here. It is such a great opportunity.” Warren finished his associate degree in the fall so he was able to take electives in the spring and explore his interests.


“I loved anthropology, I never expected to like it. But I just took it on a whim last semester. And it was one of my favorite classes. I love business law as well,” he said. 


Acting as co-president has also allowed him to explore leadership opportunities alongside his friend Morgan. “I think having two is better than one, you know, we can divide and conquer. And especially the last few months, we've been focusing on six different events at one time,” he said.


For those considering attending one of the CMS middle college high schools, Warren recommends checking it out. “If you see an opportunity, take it. If you don't think that the traditional route is for you, look into your options, look into what you can do, and go from there,” he said. 


Warren will attend UNC Charlotte in the fall and the dynamic duo has promised to stay in touch.
