SKYCTC ADULT EDUCATION TO HOST COLLEGE DAY


The Adult Education Program of Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) will host their annual event they call Adult Education College Day on Tuesday, November 1st beginning at 9:00 a.m. The event is for current Warren County Adult Education students as well as graduates of the program.

Students earning their GED or learning English will be able to explore taking the next step in the educational journey, earning a college degree. A tour of the campus and program areas, as well as information about the programs and stories from current students, will all be part of the event.

Our students in the Adult Education Center come for many reasons, says Brian Becker, Director of Adult Education at SKYCTC. Some come to learn English or earn a GED, and some of them come to study for their college exam so they can enroll in SKYCTC.

A high school education is very important, but it is predicted that by the year 2020, 56% of all jobs in KY will require some amount of college in addition to a high school degree, says Becker. All of us at Adult Education are here to help our students expand their opportunities and go to college, and we want them to know that they are never too old to pursue college! We all believe in the power of education, Becker said.

The event will begin on the College s main campus on Loop Drive in Bowling Green in the building F Conference Room. The event is free and open to the public.
