Debbie Burdette, Executive Director of Troup CLCP presents Christopher Scott Keller with award for High GED Test Score
Some recent GED graduates are proof that the dedicated efforts of Troup CLCP and its many partners are making a difference in the Troup County area. Chedbreka Dudley, Christopher Scott Keller and Matthew Osborn are just three of the more than 40 GED recipients who participated in the recent GED graduation ceremony at West Georgia Technical College.
Both Dudley and Osborn were recipients of GED scholarships provided by Troup CLCP. The scholarships, which cover the $95 cost of the GED test, are funded by donations and fund-raising events held throughout the year.
Neither student is content with their GED as both are currently enrolled at West Georgia Technical College. Dudley is pursuing a Criminal Justice Technician certificate and Osborn is enrolled in the Health Sciences program working to fulfill his dream of one day becoming a doctor. Christopher Scott Keller, who also earned his GED, was honored with a CLCP award for highest score on the GED Test during the latest academic quarter.
