Abner is proudly recognized as Student of the Month for December. She, just as many other students, began
attending the Adult Education Center as a result of the tough economic
times. She was an employee of Southern
Steel and Wire for six years until they announced its shutdown in 2010. Then, she began working at Bekaert Steel Wire. However,
periodic layoffs forced her to pursue employment elsewhere after nearly two
years with the company. She applied for
a job at Baldor in 2012 but was told that a high school diploma or GED was
required for the position. As a result,
Kristine enrolled at the Adult Education Center September 10, 2012 to pursue
being discouraged about the past, Kristine decided to take advantage of present
opportunities that will prepare her for the future. She has made great strides in her GED
preparation and her test results reflect the improvement. She is very determined and has a great work ethic. While her hard work ethic is observable, it
is only after working with Kristine for a short period of time that one can
understand that her work ethic is a result of a great positive attitude! She understands that learning math is a
process and has the patience and focus to successfully complete each step. She has made it clear that she will not give
up until she receives her GED and full-time job.
Kristine! You are well deserving of
Student of the Month. With your attitude
and work ethic, you will accomplish your goals.
