SUCCESS STORIES

James Wilson, II

Kalkaska

James Wilson, II dropped out of school in the 10th grade but says he'd never really needed a diploma to find work. That changed when the manufacturing plant where he worked closed. Wilson went to the Kalkaska Adult Education Learning Lab where he spent over 30 hours a week working toward his high school diploma. "This is an excellent opportunity, you get lots of help when you need it," said Wilson. Wilson is considering different options for his future, including possibly going on to college.
