Student Spotlight

 

Be the next ACEC Success Story - Student Spotlight



Veronica Lynn Pearson was referred to the Adult & Career Education Center in 2010 and admittedly was frightened by the prospect of studying again. During the admissions process, she felt she was “too old and set in my ways” to succeed, but she soon realized that she enjoyed working with the instructors and fellow students and wanted to learn more. She enrolled in study classes, KeyTrain, and computer skills courses.


Lynn attended classes when she was not working at her job at Goodwill Industries and quickly increased her reading and math abilities. After she passed the Reading test, she said she knew she would earn her GED®® certificate and graduate. With the help of Wayne Owen, Mary Dumont, and Nadara Kingery, Lynn steadily passed each subject test and recently earned her GED®® certificate. Lynn was also recognized by Goodwill Industries in December with the Achiever of the Year award given for Outstanding Improvement on the Job.


In her time away from studies and work, Lynn is an active mother and grandmother and an advocate for continuing education. She encourages everyone she meets, young and old, to continue their education and not drop out of school. She is fond of saying, “Education is yours, it can’t ever be taken away from you.” Congratulations, Lynn, on these great accomplishments. We know that with your determination, you will succeed!
