Seventy-five students earned their GED June 2 at Sauk Valley Community College’s GED graduation and adult education award ceremony.
The graduation and award ceremony honored the hard work and recognition these students earned after completing GED, English as Second Language (ESL), and other knowledge and skills courses offered at Sauk. Other students also earned awards as five students received their American citizenship and 34 were inducted into the National Adult Education Honor Society.
Sauk’s adult education classes prepare students to complete their GED, improve existing skills, develop new skills, focus on career training and higher self-esteem to help lead to a college education. There is no charge for these classes, which are offered at Sauk and three off-campus locations.
Sauk’s Office of Adult Education also offers English as a Second Language courses. Students from different countries learn to develop and improve English speaking, reading, and writing skills. ESL classes are also offered on campus at no charge.
