On February 21, 2013, a ceremony was held on the Jackson Campus of Southwestern Community College to honor the most recent GED and Adult High School graduates. Dr. Don Tomas, SCC College President, congratulated the students and handed out certificates.
Guest speakers for the evening were John Chandler and Epsy Willard. Mr. Chandler spoke to students about his life experiences and how he recently just returned to earn his GED from Southwestern at the age of 81. He encouraged all graduates to continue their education. Mr. Willard, who was the youngest of the graduates, finished his GED after only 15 days of class.
