Here at CEO, completing the GED is no small success for our students. It represents confidence, opportunity, and a second chance at a meaningful life. This is especially true for students such as Connie who attended GED classes at Douglas County Libraries in 2016. Her instructors believed in her ability to pursue a career in nursing, and inspired her to succeed for herself and her family. Here is a thank you letter the Douglas County instructors received this fall from Connie:
Hi Ian and Jacqui,
it’s Connie your ex student. Well I wanted to say hello and thank you both. I wanted to update you on my progress. Since I have taken my GED, I was accepted in the Emily Griffith Technical College IPN Nursing Program. It was a long 11 months. It was very rigorous! I passed and got my nursing license to practice! I got a job at Kaiser Permanente and I start on the 11th. I really want to say thank you again. The GED program was a stepping stone for me. I’m grateful for the nights at the library taking tests and you both helping me with my algebra. It gave me determination that I can make it no matter how old I am. My GED was such a huge goal of mine. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
