The following is a news release from a Southeastern Community College spokesperson:
Employers value a high school diploma. It is often a job requirement and can be a key factor in promotion possibilities within the workplace. For those who never earned their high school diploma, the General Educational Development or GED provides the same opportunities as a traditional high school diploma in regards to increasing your educational and employment options.
Enroll in one of Southeastern Community College’s free Basic Skills classes and start preparing to earn your GED. These classes are located at convenient locations throughout Columbus County and instructors are eager to help you. Sixteen- and 17-year-olds may register with special permission.
