Project Learn Adult Education of Marshall County
For over 20 years, Adult Education has been serving adults and youth of
Marshall County in preparing them for passing their High School Equivalency Exam (also known as the GED). The South Central Tennessee Workforce Alliance was recently awarded grant funds totaling $400,000 to administer the Adult Education and English as a Second Language programs in Marshall, Maury, and Williamson County. All three Adult Education programs are now recognized by the Project Learn name and are co-located with their local Tennessee Career Center.
“We are very fortunate to have our new location within Columbia State Community College and next to the local Tennessee Career Center allowing our students to obtain better overall service,” stated Sheryl Jordan, Director of Project Learn Adult Education. “Students will now be able to transition directly from the Adult Education staff to the staff of the Tennessee Career Center and Columbia State Community College where they can learn more about their options for furthering their education and/or their new career options and
“It is good for the student and the community when adult education and GED programs are provided on a campus of higher education,” said Janet F. Smith, Ph.D., president at Columbia State Community College. “It is one access point to continued education and provides the adult student with an awareness of and support for educational opportunities beyond the attainment of their GED.”
