Lanier Tech student named top adult education student in the state

By AccessWDUN staff

Desmond Vaird, a student at Lanier Technical College, was recently named Adult Education Student of the Year for the Technical College System of Georgia.

“Each and every one educated adult plays an important part in our workforce and in securing our state’s economic future,” said Gov. Deal. “These bright, motivated students are a shining example of the power of adult education to change lives, not only their own but those of others whom they inspire through their commitment and perseverance.”

Vaird, who was selected by a panel of judges from business and education, will receive a full scholarship to the technical college of his choice. In addition, his fees and books will be paid for through a stipend from the Brenda Wise Scholarship Fund, established in 2014 in memory of Brenda Wise, a lifelong supporter of adult education.
