SUCCESS STORIES

Bill Becker

Traverse City

When Bill Becker lost the job he'd had with an electrical wholesale company for 25 years he realized if he wanted to find a new job he would have to improve his math and reading skills. He did that at the Traverse City Adult Education Learning Lab. "It helped me a lot because now I can try to keep going with my education and improve more," said Becker. He's exploring different career options including welding and baking.
