Crockett County Adult Education is a program designed to help adults obtain their High School Equivalency diploma. The program is state funded through Weakley County Schools offering free classes to help students prepare to take the HiSET, formerly known as the GED.
Vouchers are available for students to cover the cost of the test and classes are free to those who attend this program.
Recent graduate of the Dyersburg Adult Education Program, Jazmin Labastida said, “Participating in the Dyersburg Adult Education Program for the HiSET was great! The classes were given at a flexible schedule and on time. We had one of the most humble instructors, Mr. Thomas Stolarick. His determination and patience lead us to obtaining our main goal. The program, along with Mr. Stolarick, provided learning tools such as books and websites for a better comprehension of the actual test. For me, it was one of the best learning experiences and it only took me two to three months until I had my diploma in my hands. Obtaining your diploma with this program is very beneficial. Not only does it encourage you to continue completing your goals but it also helps you find a better job. In my case, it helped me aspire to more than what I expected. My resume is in a better position and the best part is that it’s all for free.”
Classes are offered year round and available at Crockett Memorial Library in Alamo on Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon.
Lead instructor Tom Stolarick said, “our graduates go on to get better paying jobs and some enroll in college or trade school.”
Those interested in participating in the program may contact Stolarick at 731-259-0080.
