“Adult Education centers are improving the livelihoods of Arkansans, and it’s important to share stories of success with others who also need to get ahead,” said Dr. Trenia Miles, deputy director of the Arkansas Department of Career Education, Adult Education Division. “Our goal is to help as many Arkansans as we can become job-ready.”
“We look forward to seeing many new faces on Thursday as we participate in the Arkansas Adult Education Open House.
We know the need is great in our service areas. We have experienced what success in our program can mean for an individual and we hope to be able to work with many more people throughout Crittenden and Cross counties,” said Thomas Schlauch, Director of Adult Education at ASU Mid-South.
For the 2017-18 school year, Adult Ed. served 24,086 Arkansans statewide. Locations for each center around the state can be found at ARCareerEd.org or by calling 1-877-963-4GED (4433).
