As Kachemak Bay Campus’s academic year winds to a close, its Adult Basic Education Program would like to extend a special and heartfelt thanks to community members who have shared their time and energy as tutors in our program. These dedicated volunteers provided many hours of individual instruction in math, literacy skills, writing and English as a foreign language.
Hats off to Leslie Garrison, Kathy Hill, Jan Peyton, Peggy Murray, Royce Page, Sherry Broome, Ruby Nofziger, Trisha Davis and Jane Reagan for your extra special efforts and the support you have given our students.
We would also like to recognize the Emblem Club of Homer and the Rotary Club of Homer, Kachemak Bay, for their generous financial assistance that will enable students to take the GED exams. This will make a life changing difference for a few young people who would otherwise be unable to pay for the tests and move forward toward better employment or job training.
Adult Education adds a great deal of value to our communities as it has been demonstrated that those who continue their education subsequently experience higher levels of health, increased income, more job opportunities, increased involvement with their own children’s education and much more.
