Earning a general education development (GED) diploma is a big accomplishment that should be celebrated.
Lone Star College-Kingwood invites everyone who passed their equivalency exams between March 2016 and April 2017 to participate in this year’s GED graduation. The ceremony is on Thursday, May 18 in the Performing Arts Center (PAC) Theatre at 6 p.m. During the event, college and Lone Star College System administrators will address the graduates. Dr. Katherine Persson, college president, will present two $500 scholarship awards to selected students.
“This ceremony is very important and special for students who did not give up on their education by earning their GED,” said Liz Maloney, a Continuing Education program coordinator. “We hope these students will consider furthering their education by earning a workforce certificate, an associate degree, or a bachelor’s degree at a four-year university.”
LSC-Kingwood acquired the program from New Caney High School in 1984. Since then, the completion and passing rate of applicants has increased. The college offers GED Test Prep and Subject Specific Classes, which help a wide-range of individuals who need a GED to keep a job, find better employment, or further their education.
