Thank you for this program

"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, Christoper C., would have graduated. The services that you provide are priceless. I just wanted to thank the school district, for without it, my son would still be lost. Thank you again."
