A total of ten students were in attendance to be recognized at the GED graduation ceremony on Frontier Community College’s campus on Tuesday, May 25.  Nearly 100 people were in attendance to celebrate the students’ accomplishments.

After the welcome from Dr. Jay Edgren, President of FCC, Program Director Dena Weber welcomed the guest speaker, Joel Koker.  Koker earned his GED in 2015 and then received an Associate in Science and Arts Degree from FCC in 2018.  He graduated with high honors.  Gary Carter, member of the Illinois Eastern Community Colleges Board of Trustees, provided the charge to the class.

FCC prepares students to earn their GED by offering test preparation courses throughout the area.  Classes are free and meet in eight-week sections in Albion, Bridgeport, Fairfield, Flora, Lawrenceville, and Newton.  Online classes are also available to qualifying students.

While ten students participated in the ceremony, FCC is pleased to report that 33 students overall have earned their GED since last July.
