SUCCESS STORIES

Gary "Buck" Mabry

Manistee

Gary "Buck" Mabry dropped out of school in the 9th grade. He eventually realized he would need to get an education if he wanted to move on with his life and get a skilled profession. Gary earned his GED at the Manistee Adult Education Learning Lab. "Without the Learning Lab I'd still be studying, too   afraid to take my GED tests," said Mabry. He plans to get his Associates Degree in Behavioral Science at West Shore Community College and then go on to get his Bachelors Degree so he can become a counselor.
