ProLiteracy Member Spotlight:  Grenada League for Adult Development

GLAD is on the move! GLAD is the Grenada League for Adult Development, a volunteer adult literacy council in Mississippi. GLAD’s Adopt-A-Student project at the Grenada Adult Basic Education Center has made it possible for an increased number of adult learners to earn their high school equivalency diplomas. With the help of generous grants and donations from Liberty Finance, Rapid Cash, Chasemark, Entergy Operations and other individual donors, The Adopt-A-Student project has received $3,745 to cover the cost of the exams for students who cannot afford the expense on their own. To date, 19 students have passed their GED exam so far this fiscal year. Four of the program’s students were inducted into the local Grenada chapter of the National Adult Education Honor Society. Also, nine students were recognized for dual enrollment in the ABE program and the Mississippi Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training (MI-BEST) program at Holmes Community College, in which they earned 3 college credits.
