Lt. Governor to speak at Vermont Adult Learning graduation on June 8

MIDDLEBURY — Lt. Gov. David Zuckerman is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the 2017 Graduation and Achievement Ceremony of the Addison County branch of Vermont Adult Learning on Thursday evening.
The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. on June 8 at Middlebury College’s Kirk Alumni Center. The organization will celebrate 12 graduates receiving their high school diploma or GED, as well as 11 students being inducted into the National Adult Education Honor Society.
Zuckerman has been a strong advocate of raising the minimum wage, paid family leave, and increasing protections for workers. His passionate support of hard-working Vermonters and his experience as a small business owner and farmer serve as inspiration to our students as they begin a new journey.
Through Vermont’s innovative High School Completion Program, our students and their local high school work with Vermont Adult Learning’s certified teachers and staff to complete all coursework required to obtain their diploma. VAL, as it is known, also provides GED testing and tutoring services, English language instruction, and career and college transition services.
All services provided by Vermont Adult Learning are free of charge for Vermont residents.
Vermont Adult Learning is a non-profit organization funded through Vermont’s Agency of Education as well as other state and federal grants. It provides adults 16 years and older with the necessary skills to successfully transition to employment and post-secondary education. In the past year, almost 3,000 Vermonters entered one of the many adult learning centers to improve skills in reading, writing, math, English language, and technology. More than 370 adults earned a high school diploma or a GED while countless others received much needed support toward their educational and career goals.
