strengthen its network with other agencies in order to help more people. The
department director is Adelia Myrick who talks about an upcoming event that is
designed to help spread the word.

afternoon ... down the road")
She said the school doesn't yet
have the details about those changes but they may include more rigorous testing
standards. The GED testing service is changing the exam in order to help testers
be better prepared to enter college or to qualify for higher paying jobs.
that Friday's meeting is open to anyone but the main purpose is to provide
information to people in local help agencies.
-- (GED 2 "The meeting is
...a difficult process.")
At the program's peak two years
ago, 48 students finished the GED program. Since that time, Myrick said she's
seen a steady decline in numbers.
-- (GED 3 "and last year ...
people are graduating.")
Friday's event will take place
at 3 p.m. at the Kodiak
Center in room 208. The
meeting is open to anyone interested in learning more about GED testing and the
English as a second language program.
