Adanna James


Adanna decided it was time to get her GED®  after taking her two brothers to sign up for GED®  preparation classes at myPLACE℠. “Do it, and stick to it, no matter what,” Adanna said. She decided to take her own advice, thinking that it would motivate her siblings even more. Adanna began at myPLACE℠ @ CLC in January 2015 to prepare for the math section of the test. She studied on her own to pass the other three GED test subject sections. She credits her math teacher with motivating her along the way. Adanna not only passed the GED®, but in July of 2015, she also accepted a job offer from US Airways as a customer assistance representative! Congratulations, Adanna!
