Reading, PA- The Reading Area Community College (RACC) Adult Basic Education (ABE) program honored 80 students who have obtained their GED in a graduation ceremony on Wednesday, May 24th at 6:30 p.m. in the Miller Center on the RACC campus.

Students walking the stage have spent hundreds of hours working on GED preparation in one of RACC’s classes. These classes meet both days and evenings at different locations throughout the county. The GED examination is equivalent to a high school diploma and certifies a student as having high school graduate-level skills. This year marks the 74th anniversary of the GED diploma program.

“Adult education is a vital program in our community, and we at RACC are proud to offer this option for students looking to improve their marketability in the workforce, or continue their education at the next level,” say Dr. Anna Weitz, RACC president.

Many students graduating have also completed English as a Second Language courses and now plan to further their education-including enrolling at RACC to earn a degree.
