Moraine Park Technical College will hold its 17th annual General Educational Development (GED) and High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED) graduation ceremony on Thursday, June 19, at 7 p.m.
The ceremony will be held at Moraine Park’s Fond du Lac campus in the Cyber Center cafeteria.
Erica Avila, the English Language Learning (ELL) coordinator for the Beaver Dam Unified School District, has been selected as the Basic Education Friend of the Year and will receive a plaque at the ceremony. Avila helped launch Moraine Park’s expanded ELL program in the Beaver Dam area and set up free child care for children while their parents attended ELL classes.
“I appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with Moraine Park and offer services to families in our community,” said Avila.
Approximately 40 students are expected to participate in the event, which recognizes the accomplishments of GED/HSED graduates. According to Sandra Huenink, Moraine Park dean of basic education, 212 students completed the GED/HSED program at Moraine Park during the past year.
