Lanier Technical College was recently recognized for its promotion of adult education.

During a luncheon sponsored by the Technical College System of Georgia, the local college won an award for marketing and public relations activities that promote GED and adult education services.

Lanier Tech won among technical colleges in the large-size service delivery area.

Mike Moye, president of Lanier Tech, accepted the award on behalf of the college and the volunteer literacy organizations — Certified Literate Community Programs — in the college’s eight-county service area.

According to a statement from Lanier Tech, “This honor attests to the powerful impact that local adult education programs together with Certified Literate Community Programs can have as they work together to tackle the literacy rates in their communities.”

Lanier Tech offers an Adult Education Center at its Forsyth County campus for adults who need to improve their literacy skills or earn a General Education Development diploma.

It also has classes at various sites throughout the community for non-native English speakers who want to work on their language skills.

Throughout the state in 2008, the Technical College System of Georgia’s Office of Adult Education enrolled more than 95,000 students in adult education programs. Of those, nearly 20,000 earned GEDs.
