From Harford Community College:
Harford County was well represented by award winners at the Maryland Association for Adult Community and Continuing Education (MAACCE) annual conference on May 12 at the Maritime Institute in Linthicum Heights, Maryland.
Penny Guyer, a Harford Community College student, won the MAACCE Student Award that recognizes students who have been enrolled in adult education programs within the current fiscal year. Ms. Guyer received the award because of her dedication to learning and involvement in the community.
Martha Chrismer represented Harford County Public Schools’ Reconnecting Youth Program, the winner of the MAACCE Partner Award, which recognizes community, not-for-profit organizations, or businesses that partner with an adult education program. The Reconnecting Youth Program received the award because of exemplary partnership with Harford Community College in providing education and employment services to youth between the ages of 16 and 24 who have dropped out of high school. The program is funded by a youth services grant from Susquehanna Workforce Network. The program provides case management, career services, guidance and counseling, tutoring, and scholarships for students in GED classes at Harford Community College.
