Eight Students To Graduate From C.A.R.E.

November 18, 2015

On Thursday [Nov 19] at C.A.R.E. Learning Centre, eight students will be graduating, with each receiving their G.E.D. High School Diploma.

These graduates are the first recipients of the new 2014 GED test, which is delivered exclusively on computer and is said to be much tougher than the 2002 GED Series.

This year’s ceremony will highlight the success of 16-year-olds passing the GED test, and they will receive special mention during the programme of celebration for their success.

The learning centre was founded by Neletha Butterfield in 1983, with this year marking 32 years of educating the community.

She continues to be actively involved with the day to day running and GED instruction at the learning centre, and said: “The alternative learning centre has made a difference in our young people as we continue to prepare them for career training programmes, employability skills and college readiness certification.

“Although the 2014 GED Test has set its academic standards high and more intense I believe with a consistent plan of study those still studying to obtain a high school diploma will reap the benefits through perseverance, practice and patience. The test is passable but by no means easy.

“However, I find that the greatest joy is when you pass your GED Test and within seconds you can print your GED Transcript and prepare for higher education.”

“The ceremony begins at 12:30 p.m. in the court yard and we invite the community to support this event highlighting the success of our young people and the positive roles that our young people and adults are achieving through continued education,” the Centre said.

“At the completion of the ceremony there will be an Open House for individuals to attend to enroll students for the 2016 term and also for persons who are interested in financially supporting a young person with their GED Preparation.

“There will be words of encouragement from Mr. Michael Weeks, Shadow Minister of Community, Culture and Sports and a former Chairman of the Board of Directors for C.A.R.E. Learning Centre.”
