Virginia GED ® Success Stories: November 2012

Rodney Caulkins Rodney Caulkins Checklist Rodney Caulkins Map

When Rodney Caulkins enrolled in GED® classes at age fortysix and passed the GED® test, he not only removed the stigma he felt for not finishing high school but also felt empowered to become involved in his community. He gives back by providing an annual scholarship that pays GED® testing fees. Rodney was appointed by the Virginia Board of Education to serve a three-year term on the Advisory Committee on Adult Education and Literacy. He is a member of the Prince William County Public Schools Adult Education Advisory Council and President of Caulkins Construction Company, Inc. Last year, he was named Construction Manager for a Wounded Warrior Project in Dale City, Virginia. Rodney says, "Although I have not changed the way I do business since I earned my GED® credential, I can honestly say that I feel better about my ability to compete."
