Western Nevada College’s Adult Literacy and Language program plans to celebrate the success of its High School Equivalency exam recipients on Friday, June 17.
Seventy-five HSE recipients will be commended as their family and friends look on during the 6 p.m. ceremony at Carson Nugget Community Hall on WNC’s campus in Carson City.
“All recipients attending the celebration were enrolled in the Adult Literacy & Language program and received preparation either through the HSE Boot Camp, ongoing classes and/or tutoring,” said Angela Holt, WNC’s AL&L program coordinator and HSE Testing chief examiner.
The evening’s festivities also includes honoring new members of the National Adult Education Honor Society. Those 15 honorees are Raquel Camacho, Silvia Flores, Leonel Gonzalez, Alejandra Gutierrez, Ok Kim, Sabrina Lathrop, Linn Lawrence, Elvira Madera, Maria Meda, Martha Membreno, Francisco Javier Murillo, Kareyling Rugama-Herrera, Premlata Singh, Daniel Vasquez and Steve Wright.
WNC’s Adult Literacy and Language program is honoring six English Language Learners who passed a Certified Nursing Assistant class during the spring semester as well. They are Socorro Ampudia, Guadalupe Marroquin, Blanca Ramirez, Samanta Ramirez, Carolina Sanchez and Claudia Aguilar Torres.
Besides English Language Learning classes and HSE preparation, WNC’s AL&L program provides workforce readiness classes to adults who are striving to improve their skills and education to better their quality of life.
“All classes incorporate the skills necessary to transition to college and the workplace,” Holt said. “The AL&L program provides adult learners with pathways to college and careers.”
