Adult Education Program Celebrates Achievements of 81 Students

TRAVERSE CITY, MI—The Northwest Michigan Works! Adult Education program will honor 35 graduates receiving a high school diploma and 46 students who have completed the GED (HSE) certificate at a commencement ceremony on Wednesday, June 6 at 7:00 p.m. at NMC’s Milliken Auditorium in Traverse City. Three graduates will speak at the event.

The adult education program serves the community by helping adult learners enter the workforce ready for success. Today, adults earning a high school diploma or completing a GED (now known as HSE – High School Equivalency) certificate follow a path of purpose-driven education. “All of our adult learners have an individualized learning plan with goals that help them in their employment path,” said Christy Nelson, Adult Education Coordinator.  

Adult education services are available through the cooperative efforts of the Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District (TBAISD), Networks Northwest, and Northwest Michigan Works!. The program operates six Learning Labs in Northwest Michigan and a high school completion program at the TBAISD Career-Tech Center. Adult Education Learning Lab programs are open year round and have daytime and evening hours. Participants may start at any time and can learn at their own pace.
