GED Success Story

My son received his GED® through Windham School District. I just wanted to "Thank You" for this program. If not for this program, I do not believe my son, Christopher C. would have graduated. The services that you provide are priceless. Some of these gentlemen may not know it at the time and may do it for other people but, they will reap the rewards of having accomplished this task. I, myself, was overwhelmed by the graduation ceremony. Thanks is also in store for all of the staff that really put their hearts into educating these young men….With this new accomplishment he sees his future a little brighter….I just wanted to thank the school district for without it my son would still be lost. Thank you again.


Sincerely,
Ms. Michelle M.
