The SCILL Center announced this week that in the short time since they became a GED testing site and held their first test on Oct. 27, they’ve had four more test sessions with 27 people seeking their GEDs. Executive Director Jerry Gurrado explained the next test is Feb. 6 and 7 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the SCILL Center, and registration is required ahead of time.
Gurrado said the testing site has been used by individuals in Knox, Plymouth, Star City, and Rochester as they seek to earn their GEDs, and he said a man from Crown Point will be taking the test soon as well.
That’s not the only thing keeping the SCILL Center busy, as Gurrado said he’s also excited to host the North Central Area Vocational Co-Op annual luncheon, featuring guidance counselors from schools throughout the co-op. Gurrado said the co-op offers more than a dozen programs in several locations throughout Knox and Plymouth, with several classes offering dual credit for area colleges and universities while keeping the cost to students at a minimum.
Gurrado said SCILL Center officials have also been finishing up their visits to area high schools in the vocational co-op to meet with interested freshman, sophomores, and juniors to see if they are interested in any of the vocational programs and explain the process.
