ABE Showcase a Success!

Thursday was the MCAE’s ABE Showcase at the State House. It was so wonderful to meet with other ABE providers and legislators who are passionate about providing opportunities for adults to continue their education.  Representative Alice Peisch spoke briefly about the importance of adult education in the state of Massachusetts and later, MCAE honored Representative David Nangle as the Legislator of the Year. MCAE also honored two students who have overcome many obstacles and great odds to succeed. One student, who was previously incarcerated, will be attending college next year and majoring in human services. Another student finished ESOL courses and has attained her C.N.A. certificate. She is now studying for the G.E.D. and hopes to someday become a nurse.Image

It was truly an inspiring day. The NDEC students who attended had a great time touring the State House and “manning” our table. Thanks to everyone who helped out!
