Student and Volunteer Success Stories

Starlina Blizzard:

Starlina noted, “I am very thankful that this staff was put into my life, to help me improve in math and obtain my GED credential. It took me a while to obtain it, but with time and persistence, it was completed. I would encourage anyone who is in need of their GED to pursue it at the Chickasha Adult Learning Center. These ladies are wonderful and have meant so much to me and my family."

Student "Tiffany":

She has been one of the most positive influences in my life," states one Adult Learning Center student. Tiffany is referring to one of her instructors, Elaine Fremin, who assists adults with their educational endeavors. “I've never known anyone who cared about my success as much as she has. She's helped me to believe that I have the ability to complete the goal of obtaining my GED credential. My daughter was born two months ago and she showed up at the hospital to support and encourage me. Who does that?"

Mary came to the Chickasha Adult Learning Center in January, 2016. "I have tried for thirty plus years to get my GED. The first time that I came to class I was very nervous. The thought of me being one of the oldest students made me have second thoughts; come to find out I wasn't alone. Math and writing terrified me the most," she stated. Adult Education instructors, Angie Humphrey, Alice Hurry, and Marilyn Holt have worked diligently with Mary in her efforts to understand and retain the information she needs to pass. "Along my journey I've met some amazing people. The Chickasha Adult Learning Center is a great learning environment. Life here in school is very comforting and educational. I owe a lot of the credit to the teachers and staff who are so supportive and very patient. Angie helped me so much on history and writing and Miss Marilyn, the math guru, helped me overcome my fear of math. Miss Lisa, the director of the ALC, goes above and beyond helping students to get tested by providing resources to help pay for the testing. The encouragement truly helped me so much that I stepped out of my comfort zone."
