Eighty-eight Victoria College Adult Education students received their GED in graduation ceremonies Jan. 11 in the Leo J. Welder Center for the Performing Arts.
The ceremony honored students who have completed their certificate since August. "The graduates have worked hard and deserve to share that achievement with anyone they choose," said Tiffany Johnson, VC Adult Education director.
Guest speaker Randy Meyer, superintendent of the Sweet Home Independent School District, urged the GED graduates to continue their educational pursuits by constantly asking "what's next?"
National Adult Education Honor Society members recognized during the ceremony were Maria M. Alvarez, Margaret Aranda and Kasy Owens.
Nine students graduated through the program's Students Accelerating through Integrated Learning, which trains students to dual-enroll in Victoria College Workforce and Continuing Education classes while also completing their GED certificate. Those students were Margaret Aranda, Kim Boscarello, Jessica Cavazos, Cynthia Clifford, Marvin Cooper, Ismael Garza, Leeann Immenhauser, Yolanda Salinas and Michelle Rodriguez.
They earned certifications in certified nurse aide, truck driving or welding.
