A group of eight students took a big step as they received their GED or high school equivalency (HSE) diplomas from Beaufort County Community College on June 9. The ceremony also included three students who received their United States citizenship. It was a proud moment for students who continued to push forward with their education during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Students in the program work at their own pace with the guidance of an instructor. The program provides a second chance to adults who did not complete high school traditionally, some of whom left high school to work or start families.
