Piedmont Community College’s (PCC) Adults and Children in Education (ACE) program celebrated the graduation of seven students who completed the program recently. The graduates, pictured from left are: Mandy Trujillo, Wendy Pettiford, Christy Gabriel, and Jasmin Smith. Not pictured are graduates: Ida Scoggins, Morgan Pettiford, and Christin Tuck.

All seven graduates earned their high school equivalency diplomas during fall semester. Three enrolled and are attending PCC this semester. Three more plan to enroll at PCC by fall semester, and the other graduate plans to attend a culinary arts program at another institution.

Adults and Children in Education (ACE) is a family literacy class for adults who have not completed high school. The class meets Monday-Thursday at Earl Bradsher Preschool.

The adult education instruction offered in family literacy is not only dedicated to preparing adult learners for GED® testing but also provides parents with skills to help their children succeed in school. It is funded through a special North Carolina Community College System grant to PCC’s Basic Skills program. With the grant funding, the curriculum has been expanded to include college and career readiness for adult students, and the class schedule extended to four days per week. For the 2013-14 grant cycle of fall and spring semester, 18 adults have participated in the ACE class.

ACE is collaboration with the Person County Partnership for Children, Earl Bradsher Preschool and the Person County Department of Social Services. Adults who are interested in this class may contact Sylvia Gault at (336) 322-2155.
