Louisville, GA – Oconee Fall Line Technical College’s (OFTC) Adult Education program is pleased to announce that Crystal Holdeman, Fermin Morales, and Emily Peters have received their GED.

All three students enrolled in the Adult Education program at OFTC because they knew employment opportunities would be more plentiful with a GED diploma.

“While being home schooled was great, colleges and employers look for and want that high school diploma or GED,” said GED graduate Fermin Morales.

Morales plans to continue his education at OFTC and major in Welding and Joining Technology.  His dreams are to one day work for Plant Vogtle or Savannah River Site.

 

Both Emily Peters and Crystal Holdeman had graduated the 8th grade at Pinecrest Mennonite School, but neither had received a high school diploma. But having dreamed of working in the healthcare industry, Emily knew her first step to reaching that dream would require her to go back to school for her GED diploma.

“Emily always came in with a smiling face and great attitude for learning,” said OFTC Adult Education Instructor Jonathan Hellyer. “She is one of those energetic pupils that is always eager to learn and always willing to help others.”

“Crystal is also a very determined and hardworking student,” continued Hellyer. “She was goal oriented and focused on obtaining her GED.”

It is never too late to go back to school to earn your GED diploma or learn fine tune your skills. Adult education classes are FREE and open to the public.
