Press Release from Providing Academic Support for Success:

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate educational success then this Saturday, March 12 at Wellington with the county GED tutoring program PASS, Providing Academic Support for Success!

First, we are sponsoring our 3rd Saturday practice GED test from 9 am – 2pm.  We have 13 participants preregistered for this testing at Wellington.  If you know someone who needs their GED, call and invite them.  We will score the test immediately, help fill out the required paperwork, and pay the registration fee if their score is passing.

Recent Wellington graduates, Craig Friess,son of Debbie and David Friess,and Aaron Owens, grandson of Chuck and Sharon Owens, have been invited.  They will also attend the June graduation but Saturday would be another chance to congratulate their success.

Next, come admire the recently completed GED classroom during the open house from 1-3 pm.  Nadler’s is catering with cookies, cheese, sausage, and crackers.  I have ordered for 25 not knowing how many to expect.  If you know you will be attending, please reply.

Newspaper articles have appeared in each community’s newspaper (Lexington, Concordia, Higginsville,& Odessa) featuring that site’s tutors, the Saturday testing, and Wellington’s open house.  PASS is hoping to publicize the expanded opportunities the Wellington site has to offer with multiple computers, additional classroom space as needed, and increased hours due to material availability during CCC (Communty Christian Center) public use hours, M-F 7am-3pm & Saturday 7-10am.

So, please invite anyone interested in education to check out our program.  Whether it’s studying for the CDL (Commercial Driver License) or ACT test, solving college math problems, or preparing for the GED, remember PASS, Providing Academic Support for Success!  Please forward this email to anyone else to help spread the word about our free tutoring services.  I have attached a program brochure with all of our county locations and Saturday testing information.  Hope to see you Saturday or at our June GED graduation!
