GED Graduates Ready for Further Education and Careers
Warren County Career Center’s Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) Office recognized GED graduates recently in a ceremony with caps and gowns and a gathering of family and friends to cheer them on. The 2014-15 school year saw 29 GED graduates ranging in age from 19 to 54, and 16 others who have passed one or more sections of the exam and are still working on their academic lessons.
The ABLE program served 628 people in 2014-15 through basic literacy skills training and English for Speakers of Other Languages, and 404 entered the program under the ABLE Grant. Students represented 44 countries plus the U.S., and spoke 22 different native languages. There is one married couple who are students with the husband earning his U.S. Citizenship and the wife working on her GED and has passed three of four sections of the exam. At least 15 of the students have entered post-secondary education.
Warren County ABLE provides free instructional services to adults who need to prepare for the GED exam, improve language skills through English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), improve literacy through foundation Math, Reading and Writing skills, attain additional skills before enrolling in college, or transition into employment and college (Bridge Program).
