HCC West to host adult education open house

ELIZABETH The Highland Community College West campus will hold an informational session for prospective adult education students and adult volunteer literacy tutors from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, February 7, 2012, in room 126. Vice President of Academic Services Tim Hood will be in attendance to welcome participants and refreshments will be provided.

Experienced tutors will also be available to share their experiences with adult education. Learn how volunteering an hour or two per week can often make the difference between a students success or failure. The encouragement that tutors provide is a key influence in the lives of students using these services to secure a better job or begin earning a college degree. Volunteer tutors are always welcome, particularly in rural counties.

Students interested in classes or tutoring should also attend the open house to learn more about the enrollment and assessment process. Adult literacy services may include tutoring services, English-as-a-Second-Language classes, and/or GED preparation courses based on availability. Prospective tutors are encouraged to refer any adults in need of literacy services to this event.

The HCC Adult Education department offers FREE services to qualifying individuals living in Carroll, Jo Daviess, Ogle and Stephenson Counties. For more information about the open house, please contact Esther Mayer at 815.599.3538 or email
