Wednesday was a very special day for 9 Lee County Headstart parents. Through a partnership with Race1, Mountain Empire Community College, Appalachia Community Action Agency, and Lee County Headstart, these parents graduated from the first-ever pilot program “Get Ready!”. For 5 months, this special group met for weekly classes that covered educational skills, finances, digital learning, employment skills,and more - while offering job certification and debt reduction.

Wednesday’s graduation ceremony celebrated the remarkable achievements of these parents. It was an honor to be a part of this partnership and, over the next week, we look forward to sharing more about this group and the “Get Ready!” program. Stay tuned!

Congratulations. This former teacher sees a group of winners who are “ready” for the next step.

Congratulations on your commitment and success!

Sarah Allen graduated with her Associate’s Degree in General Education from MECC last Friday, and that’s just the first step.

Next year, Allen will graduate from Lindsey Wilson College with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Services and Counseling to support her continued employment with Frontier Health where she specializes in adult and independent living skills case management tech.

And for Sarah, it all began with completing her GED.

After a job new job required a GED, Sarah signed up for free RACE 1 classes in Lee County and started the process. “I was surprised at how easy the process was. And I really liked the layout of the program. I could learn and work at my own pace”, Allen stated.

It took one year for Sarah to earn her GED. She notes that she “felt like her GED really prepared her for her studies at MECC and beyond.”

Her advice for someone thinking about pursuing a GED? “Do it. Work at it, study, and get it done. You’ll be so glad you did.”

Congratulations on your accomplishment, Sarah! We are excited to watch your continued success!
