Standing-Room-Only Crowd as Number of GED

Graduates Swells at BCCC

 

Saturday’s annual GED graduation was a standing-room-only affair at the P.E. Center as 146 graduates traversed the stage to receive their GED certifications and refocus their sights on a changing world. The number of graduates was 22 percent higher than last year.

 

https://origin.ih.constantcontact.com/fs164/1102402771374/img/168.jpgAmong the day’s highlights was 77-year-old graduate Evangeline Wilson, who Dr. Anderson called out by name out as an inspiration to the rest of the class. Evangeline never faltered in her pursuit of a high school diploma. Although reading was her most challenging subject, she scored well above average in reading on the State GED exam.

 

And there was the mother, Leticia Wilson, who graduated with her son, Vernon Matthews.

“It was a wonderful day for a graduation which gave our recruiters a chance to show off the College and all the ways we’re ‘on the move’ at BCED,” said Gregory Mason, Vice President for Business and Continuing Ed. One-fourth of the graduates plan to enroll at BCCC to pursue associate degrees and certificates; many others will attend Coppin State University, Community College of Baltimore County, technical trade schools and other schools in the region.
