City of Cordele celebrates Adult Education Week
The City of Cordele joined South Georgia Technical College in celebrating September 3rd – 7th as Adult Education Week in Cordele.
Approximately 32 million Americans cannot read or write. In Georgia roughly 1.1 million individuals over the age of 18 have not completed high school or received a General Education Development diploma. South Georgia Technical College’s Adult Education department is helping to change those statistics by providing GED classes in Cordele, four days a week. The SGTC Adult Education department also provides GED classes and testing information in Sumter, Schley, Macon, Marion, Webster, and Taylor Counties in addition to the Crisp County site.
Edward Beach, City Manager/Clerk for the City of Cordele, visited the Adult Education classroom on the South Georgia Technical College Crisp County Center campus on North Midway Road recently to encourage the students enrolling in the GED classes.
Students may sign up for SGTC GED classes on Monday through Thursday. Day classes are 8 a.m. to 12 noon Monday through Thursday as well as 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. Evening classes are held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday nights.
