From Harford Community College:
Thirty-three graduates were recognized on June 17, 2016 at the standing-room-only GED® Graduate Recognition Ceremony in Darlington Hall at Harford Community College. Major (retired) Francine Lewis of the United States Army delivered the keynote address to the graduates. She acknowledged their accomplishment and encouraged the graduates to set measurable vision goals for their future.
The two student speakers included Kassandra Shaw, who graduated with honors and is currently employed with the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Maryland. Kassandra plans to attend Harford Community College in the fall to pursue a degree in Computer Science. The second student speaker, Victoria Gardner, shared her story about her path towards earning her GED®. Victoria also plans to attend HCC in the fall and will pursue a degree in psychology.
The General Education Development (GED®) examination is equivalent to a high school diploma and certifies that a student has achieved high school graduate-level skills. For more information on HCC’s Adult Basic Education Literacy Program, call 443-412-2616.
