MOUNT VERNON — A total of 30 students received their General Education Development degree Wednesday evening when the 2013 Adult Basic and Literacy Education graduation ceremony was conducted at the Knox County Career Center’s Adult Education Center.
ABLE coordinator Barbara Harris welcomed those attending the ceremony and thanked them for their support of the graduates. “Our program is successful because we have such a great staff,” said Harris in thanking the staff members for their dedication to the program.
Following an invocation by KCCC board of education president Richard McLarnan, three graduates were chosen to address their class during the ceremony. Clonie Angle, who is a single father and is choosing to further his education, said he is looking forward to getting a good job and spending more time with his children.
