Celebrating Graduates from Virginia’s Capital Region Adult Ed Program

Mary Penzer, an instructor with the Capital Region Adult Education Program, a part of Richmond Public Schools, has shared the successes of two adult learners, Keeshaun Hutcherson and Daniel Taylor, who recently passed rigorous testing to earn a GED®. KET’s online, on-demand FastForward course was part of each learner’s preparation.

“We are honored to have served these learners and their instructors during the process of meeting this important personal and educational goal,” commented Dr. Sarah Wilkins, Director of Adult and Workforce Education at KET. “We celebrate all they have accomplished and what is yet to come!”

Capital Region graduates:

Keeshaun Hutcherson is said to have persisted through many challenges, including the recent pandemic to complete her GED® credential. She completed this goal in June 2021 and is now attending college studying Culinary Arts Management.

Daniel Taylor, is described by Ms. Penzer as a student who worked diligently to accomplish his GED® credential. He worked a full-time job, withstood the stresses of the Covid-19 pandemic while working toward and gaining his GED®.

KET congratulates Ms. Penzer and the work being done at Capital Region Adult Education. Watch for these graduates to be featured again in the upcoming GED Grad Day video airing in May 2022.
