Next month, Howard College will be offering Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency classes, formerly known as GED classes, at a couple of off-campus sites. The classes will be held at the Salvation Army of Big Spring, located at 811 W. 5th Street in Big Spring, and at Ryan Hall, located at 605 N. Main.
Adult Education Literacy classes are FREE. Morning classes are Monday and Wednesday from 8 AM to Noon at the Salvation Army; and evening classes will be held at Ryan Hall on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 4 PM to 8:30 PM at Ryan Hall. Classes begin Jan. 22nd.
According to Eddi Saldivar, Spokesperson for the North Side Movement, the NSM had asked Howard College to partner with their organization so they could offer a variety of educational services in the North Sector.
Saldivar told KBest News that the NSM is very pro-education and that the organization is answering a need in the Northern Sector that results from a lack of public schools in the area.
She also went on to say that their plan is to provide accessible classes in order to help others receive a better education, create resumes, and further help each individual person acquire tools needed to obtain a better quality of life through education and better job opportunities.
It should be noted that these are the same classes that are available at Howard College but beginning in January they will be offered at other accessible areas in the community.
