Graduate Whitley Williams – “There is no time limit”

“The road wasn’t easy, and there were times I wanted to give up. The good thing is you can take the process as fast or slow as you would like until you complete your GED. There is no time limit.

Meet Hailee - we’re cheering her on as she gets ready to take her 3rd test this week. Hailee takes classes on Monday & Wednesday in Appalachia and Tuesday & Thursday in Wise. Hailee is looking forward to a bright future, and knew the best way to have that is to finish her education. Hailee notes that it hasn’t always been easy,  but Judy Samples and Rob Collins have helped her tremendously. Hailee plans on going to MECC after she finishes her GED to pursue a career in nursing. 

You can do it, Hailee!
