SSCC has new GED site in West Union

Southern State Community College has announced the opening of a new GED preparation site in West Union. Beginning in August, the college’s Adult Opportunity Center will offer its GED prep classes from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at the West Union Church of Christ at 270 Lloyd Road (across from the high school).

The program is offered free to any individual who is at least 16 years of age (those under the age of 19 have additional requirements). All books and materials are provided, and no fees are charged for instruction.

“We are excited to have great partners at the Church of Christ and look forward to continuing our services in Adams County at this new location,” said Karyn Evans, dean of SSCC’s Adult Opportunity Center.

SSCC’s Adult Opportunity Center provides Adult Basic and Literacy Education classes on each Southern State campus and at several off-campus locations, including UC Clermont in Batavia, Grant Career Center in Bethel, Clermont One Stop in Eastgate, Greenfield Middle School in Greenfield, and Grace Fellowship Church in Peebles.

Those interested in participating are encouraged to schedule an orientation by contacting SSCC’s Adult Opportunity Center at 1-800-628-7722, ext. 2687. Registration is required and seats are limited.
