Credit where due: Goes first to GED graduates setting examples

All the credit for GED success due to students themselves, Le Anna Bennett says, with special thanks to Supt. Alan Reed for his support - and with the announcement that Adair County is now ranked 21st among the 120 centers statewide, and just nine months into the fiscal year, Adair County has already met state requirements. Anyone interested in registering for GED classes can call the center at 270-384-7475.

By LeAnna Bennett, Director, Adair Adult Training Center

I want to thank Gary Crawford for the kind words and the credit that he has given to me for his success, but it is not mine to take.

All the credit is Gary's.

He worked really hard to achieve this goal and I couldn't be more proud of him. I would also like to thank Supt. Alan Reed for his support.

He has kept an open door policy with us and has been a great supporter. It is because of students like Gary and supporters like Supt. Reed that I can proudly announce that the Adair County Adult Education Center is ranked 21st among the 120 centers statewide, and at 9 months in fiscal year July 1, 2012-June 30, 2013, we have met the state requirements.

Adair County is such a great community and I have no doubt that with the community support, we can close out this year as being one of the top centers in the state. I hope that we can make this center one that the students and the community is proud to have.

Congratulations again to Gary Crawford! You really deserve it!!! --LeAnna Bennett

Gary Crawford congratulated by Supt. Reed

2013-03-28 - 104 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Gary Crawford of Tap's Diner left was congratulated by Adair County Superintendent Alan W. Reed after the superintendent learned of Crawford's achievement - he has successfully completed the battery of GED tests to earn a high school diploma. He did it on the first try, and credits LeAnna Bennett and the Somerset Community College Adult Learning Center at Lindsey Wilson College. for helping him with the areas for which he needed a little extra tutoring before attempting the exams. The great thing, he said, was that they could assess his chance in each area, and let him go at his own speed. Though the GED program was once a part of the Adair County School District's responsibility, Superintendent Reed said he could not be happier than he is with the program under SCC's management and with Lindsey Wilson College for hosting the Adult Learning Center. Crawford said that it was a great experience, one he'd hope other Adair Countians would attempt. Clicking ReadMore accesses a followup stroy by LeAnna Bennett
