Virginia GED ® Success Stories: October 2012

M. Lipski M. Lipski Checklist M. Lipski Map

Moving to a new country was a challenge for Magdalena Lipski. She had dropped out of school in Poland after the tenth grade, and her ability to speak English was very limited. Magdalena worked with a volunteer tutor to develop her English language skills and to prepare for the GED® test. She earned her GED® test credential and is now employed at Lunenburg Correctional Center. She acknowledges, "Without a GED, I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish that . . . I think an education is one of life’s greatest gifts." Magdalena enjoys photography and plans to study accounting at Southside Virginia Community College.
