— When Christopher "Chris" Richardson graduates from Colorado Mountain College Steamboat Springs with two bachelor’s degrees May 6, he may confide to his fellow students that he was still finishing up his coursework about midnight May 3.

That's the life of an over-achiever, so driven to better himself through education that he signed up for 27 credits in the spring semester.

Richardson is the student speaker for graduation ceremonies at the Steamboat campus and he’s accomplished the feat of earning two bachelor degrees in the span of three years.

"My average credit load was 20 credits per semester," Richardson said this week.
