Virginia GED ® Success Stories: March 2014

Helen Booze Helen Booze Checklist Helen Booze Map

The thirty years it took Helen Booze to go back to school and get her GED® were a long, hard struggle, but for Helen, it was worth it all in the end. She dropped out of school after her ninth grade year to get married and start a family. She loved school and told herself she would get her GED® one day, but a growing family and a job kept her occupied. Finally, with her kids grown, and motivated by their encouragement, Helen signed up for GED® classes at the Halifax Career Center. In 2005, she received her GED® credential. Currently, she is enrolled in her local community college and will be taking classes in computer technology. She plans eventually to earn a bachelor’s degree.
