Virginia GED ® Success Stories: June 2013

Janet Townes Janet Townes Checklist Janet Townes Map

When she dropped out of school in the 8th grade, Janet Townes thought she was ready to face the world. Admitting that she needed help because she did not have her high school diploma was the hardest thing she ever did. Janet took that step when she walked through the doors of the Adult Career Education Center in Danville. Today, she is proud of her accomplishments, having earned her National Retail Federation Certificate in Customer Service as well as her GED® test credential. Through the help of WIA, Janet is employed with Swedwood, a part of IKEA Industry Group, and is close to receiving her associate’s degree from Danville Community College. Janet’s motto is, "Never let your past hinder your future."
