Graduation 2017

The Adult Learning Center Graduation is a little different... but it would have to be because our graduates are all very different.

Some students have earned their High School Equivalency Diploma (GED), while others have earned their High School Diploma. Some students came to class in the mornings, while others came to class at night. Some students came to Pickens ALC immediately after dropping out of high school, while others have been out of school for a while. Some students came back to school strictly for personal reasons, while others need their GED/HSD to move up at work or go back to school.

What all of our students have in common is that they had some difficult choices to make. Somewhere along the line, SOMETHING happened that made their life different and caused them to leave high school. The other thing that all of our students have in common is that they made the choice to come to the Pickens ALC and in the words of Danny Adams (one of our graduation speakers) they remembered to "keep their eyes on the big picture". They're done... they're GRADUATES!!!
