In conjunction with Arkansas Adult Education Week, the Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus’ Adult Education Center hosted an open house Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Visitors were given information about its services in Franklin and Logan counties, which include General Equivalency Diploma (GED) classes at Ozark, Booneville, Paris and Charleston.

Gov. Mike Beebe presented a proclamation Monday in the State Capitol declaring Oct. 10-14 as Adult Education Week in Arkansas and Monday as GED Pride Day.

“It is timely and appropriate that attention be focused on the special efforts and dedication of Arkansas’s adult educators who prepare individuals for productive employment and enriched lives,” Beebe’s proclamation read.

“I encourage my fellow citizens to become familiar with the services and benefits offered by adult education courses and to support and participate in these programs.”

Newly appointed Arkansas Tech-Ozark Adult Education Director Connie Dunn said, “With high gas prices in today’s economy, providing local adult education programs in Franklin and Logan counties makes it easier for students to access services.”

Adult Education also offers refresher courses in reading, math and languages; computer and keyboarding classes; English-as-a-second-language classes; and testing for career readiness certificates.

Classes are offered at Ozark and Booneville from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesday and Thursdays, and from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesdays. In Charleston, classes are offered from 8:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. In Paris, classes are offered 1:30-5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
