Adult education now open for GED, HiSET classes

By Tamas Mondovics

It was only a few weeks ago that a large group of Johnson and Carter County students celebrated the fruit of their labor as new graduates of the Northeast State Community College Adult Education Program.The event held at Heritage Hall in Mountain City was a fitting conclusion following the hard work, dedication and commitment displayed on the part of all participants.To help many more with the desire and need of earning a High School Equivalency Diploma, registration for Day and Night classes for the 2018-2019 school year is now available in Johnson County.

“Earning your High School Equivalency Diploma can help you enter the job market, get that promotion, or enter technical school or college- your future opportunities are endless,” said TN Adult Education Lead Instructor (District 1) for Johnson and carter Counties, Karla Prudhomme M.A.Ed. As reported, the majority of the graduates go on to attend a technical or community college especially since the governor rolled out the TN Promise and the TN Reconnect programs that give non-traditional students, those over the age of 26, the same opportunity of two years of free college or technical school.”

To register for the 2018-2019 GED / HiSET classes and for information or enrollment in the Adult Education program, please call (423) 460-3330, or stop by the new classrooms located at 372 Cold Springs Road, in the DHS/Food Stamp office building- side entrance.
