ASK THE EXPERTS

County nearing GED goal

POSTED: December 28, 2011 4:00 a.m.

Dawson County is closing in on becoming a Certified Literate Community.

In order to be designated a Certified Literate Community the county must serve 1,638 adults with level completions or GEDs in a 10 year period, according to Reading Education Association of Dawson Director Sandy Lipkowitz.

"In just three years the Adult Education Center has reached 944 adults who have successfully obtained their GED or passed level completions," she said. "This is 58 percent of our goal."

The tests are administered through Lanier Technical College's adult education program.
"Most of the classes are taught by volunteers who are concerned about our community and its citizens," Lipkowitz said.
Additional volunteer instructors and administrative personnel are needed, she added.

Lanier Tech recently named Pat Story as the center's lead instructor, replacing Rick Brownlee who has transferred to the Hall County Adult Education Center to assist with the reorganization effort in that county.
