Savannah Tech, Goodwill partner on classes

Savannah Technical College is partnering with Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire to bring adult education/GED classes to Richmond Hill.

“We are excited to be working with Goodwill in this effort,” said Savannah Tech President Kathy Love. “We know how important this instruction is to the students and their families. We know that attainment of a GED opens doors to higher education, to employment and to a better quality of life. I look forward to welcoming these students to our campuses to continue their studies once they earn their GED.”

Savannah Tech’s adult education’s program offers classes from 5-8 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday at the Goodwill Richmond Hill Career Center. Since the classes began, two students have earned their GEDs, and nine students are enrolled now with more joining each week.

The classes also are offered at the Richmond Hill Library from 1-4 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

“Helping people develop the skills they need to gain employment is critical to Goodwill’s mission,” said Goodwill’s CEO, Mohsen T. Badran. “This center represents a new level of capability for Goodwill Industries in Bryan County and an expansion of our services to those seeking the GED. We are expecting great results.”

Savannah Tech teaches adult education classes in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty counties with multiple locations in each community.
