SAVANNAH — Savannah Technical College (STC) is partnering with the Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire Inc. to bring adult education/GED classes to Richmond Hill.
“We are excited to be working with Goodwill in this effort,” said Kathy Love, STC president. “We know how important this instruction is to the students and their families. We know that attainment of a GED opens doors to higher education, to employment and to a better quality of life. I look forward to welcoming these students to our campuses to continue their studies once they earn their GED.”
STC Adult Education’s program offers classes from 5-8 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday at the Goodwill Richmond Hill Career Center.
Since STC’s Adult Education classes began at the Goodwill center in Richmond Hill, two students have completed the program to earn their GED. There are nine students enrolled now with more joining the class each week. STC Adult Education classes are also offered at the Richmond Hill Library from 1-4 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.
“Helping people develop the skills they need to gain employment is critical to Goodwill’s mission,” said Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire Inc. CEO Mohsen T. Badran. “This center represents a new level of capability for Goodwill Industries in Bryan County and an expansion of our services to those seeking the GED. We are expecting great results.”
