Gadsden State Community College has a great suggestion for a New Year’s resolution for those without a general equivalency diploma or high school diploma.
“The new year is a wonderful time to make education your priority,” said Dr. Karen Blythe-Smith, associate dean for Instructional Services. “Gadsden State’s Adult Education Services has opportunities for qualified students to take GED preparatory classes at no cost.”
The classes are offered to those who reside in Calhoun, Cherokee, Cleburne and Etowah counties and are at least 17 years with no high school diploma. They must not be currently enrolled in public school.
Gadsden State is hosting two Open House events for those interested in taking advantage of classes offered by Adult Education Services. The first Open House is from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Jan. 3 at the Cheaha Center on Gadsden State’s Ayers Campus in Anniston. The second Open House is from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Jan. 5 at Ralls Hall on the East Broad Campus in Gadsden.
“Adult Education Services offers a variety of instructional packages, academic services and community projects,” she said. “The Open House is the perfect opportunity for students to learn more about what is offered.”
Those wanting to learn English as a second language are also encouraged to attend.
