Adults looking to complete their high school education with a GED diploma might be eligible for an evening program through Grand Rapids Community College.
GRCC has been awarded a $100,000 federal grant that will allow 100 people age 18 or older to enroll in the classes, if they are able to read at at least an ninth-grade, said Dave Selmon, GRCC's adult education director.
“There is a huge, huge need for a program like this in West Michigan, and in the state of Michigan, period,” he said.
“GRCC is happy to step up and offer this to help people get that GED and move on to a post-secondary degree. It's one way for us to reach out and help the community.”
The program is limited to the first 100 people who qualify after taking the test.
