Literacy and Beyond’s’ 2GEN Learning Center in Port Huron celebrated twelve GED graduates Thursday night. The program prepares women for the GED test by offering one-on-one tutoring and small group classes along with support programs like individual counseling services, free lunch, and incentives for good attendance. Women with preschool-aged children also receive free childcare and a class for moms and kids together.
This year’s graduates shared many heartfelt thanks to the staff at Literacy and Beyond for their constant encouragement and support as they worked toward their educational goals. The students were also awarded scholarships totaling over $4,000 from St. Clair County Community College, The Community Foundation of St. Clair County, and the Nancy L. Hinkley Memorial Scholarship Fund. The program is funded by generous donors and grants from local community foundations.
