Carroll Community College Celebrates National Adult Education And Family Literacy Week

Westminster, Md., Carroll Community College will celebrate National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week from Sept. 10 to 16 by showcasing programs that improve basic skills or lead to a high school diploma. Adult education programs provide a strong educational foundation for communities.

On Tuesday, Sept. 11, students studying English as a second language will go to the Carroll County Public Library (CCPL) to learn how family literacy can help parents and children learn together. On Wednesday, Sept. 12, Adult Education students and graduates will visit the Carroll Community College campus and receive a tour. Students may not have visited the campus yet because their classes are held at the Adult Education offices at the Business Employment Resource Center (BERC) on Center Street in Westminster. Finally, on Thursday, Sept. 13, students making preparations for the GED exam will go to CCPL.

Throughout the week, announcements will appear in the newspapers, on the college website and on the radio to make the community aware of the nationally-celebrated week designated by Congress.

To learn more about GED and high school diploma programs for adults, contact the Carroll Community College Adult Education program at 410-386-2550.
