Growing up in a family of twelve, Phyllis Harris, like many of her siblings, needed to leave school and earn a living. She did this at sixteen, and worked in factories and retail for many years. Later, spurred on by an older sister, five of Phyllis’s family members earned GEDs, and Phyllis soon followed suit. Today, she is proud to be one of eight members of her family who hold a GED® and proud to be the "Pony Lady," or mail clerk, for Montgomery County Public Schools.
