What Getting My GED Means to Me

“Getting my GED was personal goal to me because it would prove that I could achieve something I had wanted to for a long time. After dropping out in my junior year of high school in 1987, I was very scared to take the test because I was afraid of failing. Reading was an area that I struggled with specifically.
Since coming to ICCS, the CEO staff has been very helpful in helping me to reach my goal and I thank them very much for their hard work. On the actual test, I did very well on the reading section and had to do more work on my math. After working with Dan (the tutor) a few times, I was able to pass the math section.
I would also like to thank him very much for helping me and for all of his time. Thank you again to all of the CEO staff and volunteers for all of their help!”
