"Kevin Moore Scholarship for Adult Education" Donation Received
On Friday, October 25th, leaders from the Grenada School District's Adult Education Program and the Grenada League for Adult Development (GLAD) were on hand for an event hosted by the Grenada Community Foundation at First & Green, honoring the late Kevin Moore and receiving donations for the "Kevin Moore Scholarship for Adult Education." This $5,000 donation is designated to help cover High School Equivalency (HSE) testing fees for students at the Grenada Adult Education Center on the GED® and HiSET® national tests.
Several representatives from the Grenada Adult Education Center were on hand. Ashley Duke is the student representative serving on the GLAD/Adult Education Advisory Board and a HSE graduate, currently a full-time student at Holmes Community College Grenada. Grenada Adult Education Director and GLAD board member Priscilla Burns gave a moving thank-you at the October 25th event. Cindy Heimbach attended representing the Mississippi Adult Education state office. Although based in Grenada, she is the Instructional Development Specialist for Mississippi Adult Education. Valinda Smith is the HSE Testing Site Manager/Chief Examiner and Adult Literacy Program Coordinator.
The Grenada Adult Education Center is an official testing site for the GED® and HiSET® high school equivalency tests. Testing opportunities are offered monthly. Passing all parts of one of these tests is a way to earn a Mississippi High School Equivalency diploma. The total for taking all four parts of the GED® test is $120. The total for taking all five parts of the HiSET® test is $88.75 (plus an additional $1.50 per part if using a test voucher). Visit the HSE testing section of this website for more info.
Our sincere thanks to Moore family and friends and the Grenada Community Foundation for their support of our students and aid in helping achieve the goal of a high school equivalency diploma for many students in the future.
