Kornerstone students obtain GEDs

Thursday, May 22, 2008

Marlene Whitham, the director for Kornerstone, has announced that six more students have passed the General Educational Development (GED) test.

Those students include Frank Nunez, Patricia Carla Wilson, Shane Gould, David Mason, Brent Terrell and Molly Lugena and all attended GED classes at the Kornerstone Adult Education Center in Shell Knob. The classes are provided by Crowder College Adult Education and Literacy Program.

Lugena received a scholarship level score. This means that a portion of her college tuition will be paid if she meets all the criteria.

According to Janet Ballard, AEL instructor for Crowder College, the time it takes to prepare for the GED varies with each individual.

"Some of these students began in September and some just started in February," said Ballard. "Some of the students had a total of over 156 hours of classroom instruction while one person had only 15 hours."

Another group of GED student are to take their test on June 13 at the Crowder College-Cassville campus.
