MACC's Adult Education and Literacy High School Equivalency Program Recognizes 114 Graduates
Moberly Area Community College (MACC) recognized 114 individuals who completed MACC's Adult Education and Literacy High School Equivalency program between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2021 on August 26, 2021. Thirty-three graduates attended the ceremony.
For several decades, the Adult Education and Literacy program (AEL) has been offered at the college. AEL offers a flexible classroom setting in which adults at least 17 years of age can learn at their own pace. The program provides students with individualized learning assistance based on their needs. The AEL program prepares many students for the High School Equivalency (HSE) exam. Alternatively, students may receive instruction to brush up on their academic or everyday living skills. This program is free for students and is funded by the state and federal governments.
“MACC's AEL Commencement program is one of my favorite events,” says Dr. Jeff Lashley, MACC President. “Our graduates have achieved an important goal in their career, which opens up many more opportunities, whether they enter the workforce or continue their education. As with any other degree or certificate offered by MACC, the AEL Program can be life-changing for those who complete it. I am eager to see the accomplishments of this graduating class.”
The mission of the MACC AEL Program is to provide any citizen of this community and the surrounding area with access to free classes to obtain a High School Equivalency (HSE), improve basic skills, prepare for the workplace, or receive career counseling. It is also the goal of AEL to provide volunteer tutor assistance to any participating student whenever possible. The ultimate goal of the program is for students to successfully achieve educational and lifelong goals.
