Lurleen B. Wallace Community College’s Jennifer Hall, adult education specialist and continuing education coordinator, recently visited Washington, D.C., as part of a delegation of educators to educate federal policymakers about the importance of adult education.
“Hill Day” was sponsored by the Commission on Adult Basic Education (COABE), a national education organization. Hall spent a full day on Capitol Hill, spotlighting the work LBWCC is doing to improve the job readiness skills of students to change their lives, help their families, and strengthen their communities.
“Adult education is an important part of the mission of community colleges in Alabama and the nation,” said LBWCC President Dr. Herb Riedel. “Our program helped nearly 300 individuals last year alone and continues to reach out to those who need to complete a GED to further their education or improve their employment opportunities. We are pleased that Jennifer Hall was able to represent our College on the federal level.”
“It was an opportunity to serve as a champion for Alabama’s adult education programs that are changing lives,” Hall said. “ I want to be certain our leaders understand how vital these programs are to our communities.”
