AHEC Students Complete GED in Spanish

AHEC Students Complete GED in Spanish

The South Central Area for Health Education Center (AHEC) at WKU receives funding from the Community Development Block Grant with the city of Bowling Green and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation to offer ESL and GED classes in Spanish. 7 students completed their GED in Spanish and passed the test in December before the new testing system went into place January 1, 2014.

Noé A Pérez,  Claudia Valladares, Giraldo Borrego, Edith Velasco Hernández, José Roberto Alvarado, Enrique Rodríguez and Gerardo Alvarado all participated in a graduation ceremony that was held on Saturday, December 14th at the Carol Knicely Conference Center to recognize and honor these students and their families for this achievement.

This GED program is the only one offered in this area that is taught in Spanish.  While it is very important for all immigrants to learn to speak English, it is much faster for them to pass the GED in Spanish.  Completion of the GED usually leads to a salary increment especially for those who work in local industries.  The GED program for Hispanics is taught by Pablo Nausa and Lucy Lira.  A special thanks to Judy Schwank for providing space for this educational program.

For more information about this program or any of the services provided by South Central AHEC, please contact Lucy Juett, Director, South Central AHEC  Lucy.juett@wku.edu         (270) 745-3325.
