One hundred and fourteen graduates will receive their GED/HSED credentials from Omega School at their Winter Commencement Ceremony on Thursday, Dec. 8, 6 p.m. at Madison College Goodman South campus.
“This is an opportunity to celebrate the hard work each student accomplished by investing in themselves,” said Oscar Mireles, the executive director/principal of Omega School, in a statement. “For many GED students, without the additional support of friends and family, this goal of a high school credential would not have been possible.”
While most students graduate from high school in four years, there are some who don’t – due to circumstances within and/or beyond their control. Other students must once again reaffirm their credentials due to relocation or records destruction. In spite of personal and some societal barriers, many of these students struggle and succeed to obtain their HSED or GED with assistance from Omega School.
Omega School is an alternative school for people wanting to secure their GEDs or HSEDs Diplomas. Founded in 1972, Omega School has helped thousands of young people get back into the system, study for their tests and most importantly – pass those tests with a high school credential.
Due to the pandemic, these GED/HSED graduates from the past three years will finally have a chance to appear in an in-person graduation ceremony.
Omega School will also recognize the accomplishments of several supporters including:
- Sherry Holly, GED Administrator, Department of Public Instruction
- Elaine and Nick Mischler. local community leaders
- Dr. Carlton Jenkins, MMSD Superintendent
The Omega School graduation is open to the community.
