Local Graduates Receive High School Equivalency Diplomas

July 3, 2014
By

Family and friends recently joined eleven local graduates at the Franklin County Courthouse to celebrate their educational accomplishment. The students completed Adult Basic Education training and received their High School Equivalency diplomas.

The graduates trained at either Brookville or Laurel and had to pass a 7-hour, two day test. The exam concentrated on subjects such as reading, writing, math, science and social studies.

The Franklin County Observer was in attendance at the ceremony and noted each student had success and received high marks from teachers. The class was ideal for students like Ashley Robinson, 17, who is new stay-at-home mom while her husband serves in the military. Attending traditional high school was not feasible under the circumstances.

Another student, Teresa Blum, has been offered a job but needed the diploma to be hired. The newspaper reported that she graduated and accepted the position.

Those interested in learning more about obtaining the High School Equivalency diploma can contact Polly Brown at (765) 309-2001. Classes begin in August.
