Warren County resident Gage Gardner is a high achiever.He graduated from WCHS one year early and now the 17-year-old is preparing to serve his country in the U.S. Army. Gardner is scheduled to leave this Tuesday for basic training at Fort Jackson, S.C.“The Army told me they don’t get many people who join at 17,” said Gardner. “One of the requirements is you have to graduate from high school and most people don’t graduate until they’re 18.”With the permission of his mother, Jamie Farnsworth, he was able to enlist at 17.
