Lewis-Clark State College GED graduation is Friday, May 3

Graduates of Lewis-Clark State College's 2013 GED Class will assemble Friday, May 3, at 7:00 p.m. in the LCSC Activity Center to celebrate another milestone in their journey. The class includes 45 students who have completed requirements for the General Educational Development certificate at LCSC sites in Grangeville, Lewiston, Moscow, and Orofino.
This ceremony culminates 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.
Donna Callahan, Director of the LCSC Adult Learning Center, will welcome graduates, their families and friends following the traditional processional and National Anthem. LCSC President Dr. J. Anthony Fernández, Dr. William Goesling from the Idaho State Board of Education, and Dean of Professional-Technical Programs, Dr. Rob Lohrmeyer will all provide greetings. The Lewiston Rotary Club will present a $1,000 scholarship to two exceptional GED graduates. Four students will share in giving the commencement address.

Following the commencement ceremony, a reception is planned for graduates, their families and friends.
