Learning Centre students graduate

Eleven students will receive their High School Diplomas (GED) in a graduating ceremony at the CARE Learning Centre tomorrow.

They will represent the second class who have passed the new 2014 GED test.

The test is delivered exclusively on computer and is regarded to be much tougher than the 2002 GED series, explained a press release.

“This year's ceremony will highlight the success of students between the ages of 16 and 17 years old who will receive special mention during the programme of celebration for their outstanding success and passing scores.

“One of the seventeen year old GED graduates has achieved a GED College Ready level, demonstrating the skills to start college level courses.”

The Learning Centre was founded by Neletha Butterfield in 1983.

Ms Butterfield said that “education was not only a ladder of opportunity, but it was also an investment in our future.

“These young people have been given another opportunity to show that they can achieve and will achieve throughout their lives.”

Speaking at tomorrow's ceremony will be Mr. Fitzgerald Williams, a 1990 graduate of CARE who currently works as a social worker. The ceremony begins at 12.30pm in the courtyard
