Heartland graduates receive GED's
The Kirksville Adult Education and Literacy program held its commencement ceremony at William Matthew Middle School Friday evening.
There was a short program beginning with graduation remarks from the valedictorian and salutatorian.
After staff awarded the certificates, KTVO spoke with salutatorian, Ciara Clay, who says she's thankful for a second chance.
â??I feel amazing. Iâ??m very prideful and excited and I think Tom and everybody else here for giving me the opportunity to go back. I dropped out my senior year, a couple months before graduation, and I had my daughter and was trying to work,â?? said Clay.
Andy Shahan was valedictorian and Shelby Wilhite was also salutatorian.
Faculty, staff and students of the program would like to send a special thanks to the Rotary Club of Kirksville and Gamm, Incorporated.
