They did it, oh yes, they did!!
Clarendon County Adult Education held our graduation ceremony on Thursday evening, May 12 in the auditorium of F. E. Dubose Career Center. We celebrated as 27 graduates from the 2015-2016 school year marched across that stage, along with 6 students who were not able to participate in the ceremony last spring as 2014-2015 graduates. In all, they earned 28 GED Diplomas, 5 High School Diplomas, 25 National Career Readiness Certificates, and 5 G…ED College Readiness Distinctions. We are very proud of their accomplishments, and the ceremony was a tribute to their success. Guest speaker, Dr. John Lesaine of Newberry College, provided the graduates with praise and motivation to let this be the end of their new beginning in life instead of the end of their goal. “I am not here to be common,” Lesaine told the graduates to recite to and remind themselves.
