NOW is the time to finish the GED Test!
The GED Testing Service recently announced that the current version of the GED test, the 2002-Series, will expire at the end of 2013. Those students who have taken the 2002-Series but not passed all five sections have until the end of the year to pass or they will need to start over again with the new series in order to obtain their high school credential. The 2014 GED test will be based on emerging national and state standards. It will offer dual performance levels where test takers can earn the high school equivalency credential as well as an additional endorsement that indicates career and college readiness. The new test will be delivered soley on the computer and the cost is significantly higher.

Generous Donations Help Lifelong Learning Reach Fundraising Goal
Recently the Harrison County Community Foundation began "Help Build Our Future" an online fundraising program to help local organizations with unmet capital needs. Harrison County Lifelong Learning was one of the first organizations to showcase a need, specifically an updated computer workstation for the Adult Education classroom. As Adult Education and GED preparation classes have become almost exclusively online, having up-to-date computer hardware and software is essential to our programming. Thanks to several generous donors, we were the first organization to achieve the fundraising goal! Many thanks to the Harrison County Community Foundation for launching this initiative.
