LET’S GET STARTED

"My goal was to gain the satisfaction of knowing that I could obtain my GED certificate. I had been putting this off for the last 35 years. At 51 I feel like I have really accomplished something significant. Something that nobody can take away from me or minimize the importance of my accomplishment, I did this for me."

– Mike
