When Ashley was 18 she moved across state and then across the country making it difficult for her to continue her high school education. She then married and had a son but soon realized that the best option for her to further her education was through the GED® program.
Ashley’s husband worked at Walmart which allowed her to partake in the GEDWorks™ program so she could receive her diploma for free. While going through the program Ashley discovered she had a lot of support especially from her advisor and her husband. “Without this program being extended to spouses I would have never completed my GED®. I would recommend it to anyone because it’s the difference between earning minimum wage and maybe one day becoming a CEO. It is worth it to nourish your mind.”
While studying for the test and balancing her everyday duties was difficult, Ashley soon became a graduate of the GEDWorks™ program and received her GED® credential.
She’s excited to share, “Now that I have earned my diploma, I plan to go back to school and work on completing a bachelor’s degree in social work to extend my own knowledge and lend a helping hand in my community.”
