John Custer ACHIEVED his GED!

John Custer joined the OIC GED program on August 10th. Prior to attending our program, John had attended a two-year trade school. In this program, he was assured that he would have a high school diploma when he completed the program. When he graduated the program, he received a certificate that he was told was a “high school diploma”. He shared this with two successive employers. Later when attempting to apply to college, he discovered that the trade school was not accredited to issue a valid high school diploma, so his diploma was not accepted by the college. This brought John to the doors of OIC in search of a GED program. When John went through the intake process on August 10th, he shared his goal of attending DCCC in January to get an associate’s degree in the area of machine and tool/die cutting.
