Merri decided to get her GED® because “it was time to further my career and I needed to have my GED® to do that.”

Merri loved the GEDWorks™ program and would recommend it to her coworkers.

“It was easiest and the best way for me to succeed. I could do all of my work at home and not have to take extra time from my family.”

Merri also had a big support system helping her navigate the GED®. She loved the positivity and encouragement her student advisor brought to the process. Merri’s coworkers also helped.

“My manager always made sure that if I needed time off for a test I had it. He also encouraged me throughout the whole process and made sure that a high five and a congrats were waiting the next day at work.”

Now that Merri has earned her diploma she is doing an optician apprenticeship to get her optician license.
