Adult Education Graduation

I was pleased and honored and inspired to be a part of Thursday evening’s Adult Education ceremony.  I love this ceremony because it celebrates the accomplishments of people who persisted even though school didn’t work out the first time for them.  I was especially moved by the student speakers, Anna-Nicole Gambrell, April Hall, Shiquan Portee, and Joe Brown.  I also deeply appreciated Representative Laurie Funderburk and  Central Carolina Technical College President Tim Hardee being there.  Over 80 individuals have received GEDs or diplomas this year through our Adult Education program.  For a district our size, this is simply outstanding!  Many thanks to Director Weyland Burns and his staff for making all of this happen!
