New Program Helps Adults Receive High School Diploma


 More than 10,000 people in Belmont and Harrison Counties alone do not have a high school diploma, but one career center is putting an end to that.

The Mid East Career and Technology Center offers a program called Adult Basic and Literacy Education — or better known as ABLE.

The program is for adults who have not completed secondary education and are seeking employment.

Senator Lou Gentile paid a visit to the Harrison County campus to learn more about this class

“I’m very encouraged by the stories I’ve heard from the families and their children about how much this program has helped them gain basic fundamental skills that will be beneficial in the workforce,” said Gentile. “If we can improve our workers and our workforce development, I think we will enhance our regional economic prosperity.”

ABLE is available at any Mid East Career and Technology Center and has proven to be successful for over 400 people since 2012.
