Christopher Strenge


I was hired as the Office of Adult Education’s Workforce Liaison in 2005. Now, as my duties continue to expand, I provide referrals to individuals looking for classes and programs, as well as manage our new online registration system. One beneficial aspect of my work has been the pride of accomplishment that my role has offered me. The most remarkable has been when I’ve been able to help others who are looking to improve their lives by making a positive move towards working to be a successful part of their own future. Working with OAE has educated me to the fact that promoting and facilitating adult literacy is one of the most important societal contributions one can make.
