By Staff
CLARKESVILLE - Marvin Scobee is committed to adult literacy. For the past 20 years, he has dedicated his energies and talents as a tutor preparing students to take the GED Exam. Recently, Scobee was given a certificate of appreciation for reaching a milestone of more than 500 GED graduates.

"Marvin's dedication and passion to adult education is invaluable to the community and to North Georgia Technical College," noted NGTC Dean of Adult Education Shelby Ward as she presented the award. "It is remarkable, rewarding, and exciting to have helped so many people earn their GED. The great thing is that he is still working in the program and that number will continue to grow as he changes lives in our communities."
