“Adult Education is crucial for building a bright future. It changes who we are for the better. Adult Education redeemed my self-worth. What is left for people like myself that don’t have a high school credential? We become adult members of society; we struggle in minimum wage jobs; sometimes, we don’t pay all of our bills. We don’t contribute to society; we take from it, but I found my salvation. I found Lanier Tech’s Adult Education Program, and after six long months of hard work, I passed my GED®. The next time that I cried at a graduation, it was tears of joy, it was my own graduation.”
