GED Graduation Celebration
On May 11, Literacy Pittsburgh hosted our first GED graduation in over three years! All 130+ graduates from the last several years were invited to attend graduation. We welcomed 35 graduates and their families and friends to Foerster Student Services Auditorium at CCAC Allegheny Campus. Congratulations to all our graduates! We look forward to hosting our next graduation in the spring of 2024.
Imagine choosing between finishing high school or caring for your sick grandmother. That’s the dilemma Kali had to face. She chose family. When her grandmother passed away, young Kali went to “a very dark place,” she says. She was down but not defeated. When she found out about Literacy Pittsburgh’s high-school equivalency preparation program, she knew she had found a way to move forward. Kali began taking classes at Literacy Pittsburgh's Beaver County branch after her husband returned home from a military assignment and their daughter Layla was born. This past November, Kali passed her GED tests and received her high-school equivalency diploma. That very day she brought cupcakes—and her adorable daughter Layla—to the Literacy Pittsburgh offices to celebrate.
