SUCCESS STORIES

Jennifer Hanson

Petoskey

Jennifer Hanson and her husband Randy both earned their GEDs at the Petoskey Adult Education Learning Lab. Jennifer was selected as one of the student speakers at the 2011 Adult Education Commencement Ceremony. "If I was going to get a better job, or go to college, or set a good example for my daughter, I needed to go back to school and finish my education," said Jennifer. She and  and Randy both enrolled at NCMC.

Study Skills Classes

Study Skills are important tools for the person going on to college.  At the Northwest Michigan Works! Service Centers, Study Skills workshops are offered once a month by Adult Education Learning Lab instructors.  Workshop participants learn how to improve their reading comprehension and effectively read a textbook.  The process of taking meaningful notes and preparing for tests is also reviewed.  Time management is another important skill for a successful college experience.

After attending the workshop, the videos below may be helpful in providing a review of what was presented at the workshop.  To access the Workshop calendar at the service center nearest you, click on the following link.
