(June 18, 2019 – Beaumont, TX) The Maurine Gray Literacy Program/Beaumont Public Library System, in conjunction with the Adult Education Program at Region V will be holding a High School Equivalency Graduation Service at The Event Centre on June 25, 2019, at 6:30 pm. Individuals who have successfully completed their High School Equivalency Testing will be awarded certificates and a brief reception will follow the Ceremony.

The Maurine Gray Literacy Program is very excited to be co-hosting this event to recognize students who have worked so hard to improve their lives by acquiring this certificate. Significant economic and health disadvantages are associated with incomplete high school education. In obtaining the high school equivalency certificate, these students have opened the door to increased job opportunities, higher incomes, better health over the course of their lives, and access to post-secondary education.
