CUMMING - According to the most recent census, Forsyth County has over 12,000 adults who do not have a high school or general equivalency diploma(GED). Now, thanks to Literacy Forsyth, adults seeking their GED can do so a little closer to home. <br />
Literacy Forsyth has partnered with Little Mill Middle School to offer the community free general equivalency degree (GED) classes. The classes began earlier this month and are ongoing. <br />
"We believe it's important to help people get their GED because it improves our community overall," Annaliza Thomas, executive director of Literacy Forsyth said. "With a GED, people have access to more of the things that keep families healthy, happy and safe."<br />
Thomas added that the program will also offer students help beyond the GED exam such as applying to technical school or assistance with job search and resume workshops. <br />
