Rainbow Park Baptist Church in Decatur is hosting an awards breakfast for its GED participants on Thursday, May 4, 9:30 a.m., in the fellowship hall at 29141 Columbia Drive, Decatur.
The special guest speaker for the program will be Diane Adoma, the newly-elected District 5 council member for the City of Stonecrest. Dr. Adoma will share her riveting success story of how she went from a GED to a PhD.
This year’s participants will be recognized for their dedication and commitment to the program. Forty students are enrolled in the program, said Sandy Ferguson, director.
Rainbow Park, under the leadership of Dr. Steven N. Dial, has provided free GED classes for more than 8 years and continues to focus on education and literacy in the community. The GED program offers classes online and on campus, Ferguson said.
The breakfast awards program is free and all are welcome.
