Dear Editor,

Donations are a big part of the success for many GED students in Marshall County. The test from 2002-2014 has changed in price from $60 to $120. The 2014 GED test is $30 for each section on Science, Social Studies, Math and Reading/Language Arts. For many of the students it is a large amount of money to take from an everyday budget.

We are very fortunate that our community comes together to support the students. Marshall County Adult Education wants to thank Regions Bank for their donation. Regions has donated $150 to our GED testing fees. This will help one student complete a GED test or it can be split among several students who are now ready to take sections of the test.

Please consider donating to your local adult education centers for deserving students. It helps build stronger communities with educational enhancements, provides students with the opportunity to pursue further education in post-secondary, and also opens doors for better career opportunities in your area.
