Free GED program can make future brighter

The economy has caused hardship for many people this year. Lots of people are feeling the crunch in the gas tank, the grocery store, and practically everywhere else. But right now the state of Kentucky is working with Adult Education Centers to help those who need the GED to take the test free.
Director of Owen County Adult Learning Center Veronica Gayle said education will be even more important in the future.
“We all know it is almost impossible to find a decent paying job without a high-school education.” Gayle said. “Businesses of every kind are requiring more and more education. It is projected that in the next 20 years, 80 percent of jobs created will require some postsecondary education. The first step toward that future is completing the high school equivalency.”
Professionals find that so many adults fear that they have waited too long to attempt the GED test.
It is intimidating, especially if you have been out of school for a while. But most people are amazed to discover that they have learned a lot of valuable information in their day-to-day life.
The Adult Learning Center is designed to take some of the fear out of the process.
Adults can come to the center  to see where they are and determine what they need to complete the GED.
The program is free and our hours are flexible to meet the needs of adult students.
Over the years, the center has helped hundreds of Owen County residents earn the GED and move forward with their goals.  
It just takes one giant step to meet your goals and one small step into the Adult Learning Center to get you on the road to a brighter future. Owen County has scheduled GED testing sessions for the next two months to give everybody who wants to seize this golden opportunity.
The test dates are May 24 and June 21.  
You must be pre-registered for the test.
