2002 GED Class Graduates
LEWISTON - Graduates of Lewis-Clark State College's 2002
Class will assemble Friday, May 3, 2002, at 7:00 p.m. in the Gymnasium to
celebrate another milestone in their journey. The class will include 85
students who have completed requirements for the General Educational
Development certificate at LCSC sites in Deary, Grangeville, Kamiah, Kooskia,
Lapwai, Lewiston, Moscow, Orofino, Pierce, Potlatch, Riggins, and Weippe.
This ceremony follows a rigorous 7 1/2-hour battery of exams that measure
the essential academic skills and concepts of a traditional high school
education. Students who complete the program have demonstrated higher order
thinking skills, problem solving ability, and reading and writing skills.
Tests cover the core curriculum areas of writing, social studies, science,
literature and the arts, and mathematics. They also measure an adult's
ability to understand and apply information, evaluate, analyze, draw
conclusions, solve problems and express ideas and opinions in writing.
Mr. Randy Harper, Director of Learning Services at LCSC, will welcome
graduates, their families and friends following the traditional processional
and National Anthem. LCSC President Dr. Dene Thomas, Faculty Association
Chair, Dr. Rob Lohrmeyer, Nez Perce Tribe Executive Committee, Mr. Arthur
Taylor, Jr., and state Representative Dan Mader will provide greetings. Dr.
Ray Sanders, representing the Downtown Lewiston Rotary Club, will present
$1,000 scholarships to two exceptional GED graduates.
Two students will share in giving the commencement address - Trulin
Ellenwood and Melissa Mumby. Donna Callahan, coordinator of Adult Basic
Education at LCSC, will present the Class of 2002 for the conferring of
certificates by President Thomas.
Following the commencement ceremony, a reception is planned for graduates,
their families and friends.
