SUCCESS STORIES

Fred Ray

Traverse City

Fred Ray quit school in the 9th grade, so when he lost the manufacturing job he had for 26 years he didn't have any education to fall back on. He went to the Traverse City Adult Education Learning Lab to work on his GED. "This class has really done wonders for me, I really learned a lot," said Ray. He's looking at different education options including a certificate program in landscaping.
