Another student, Patricia Oliver-Munoz, explained her reasons for taking the classes:  “I’m proud that my children have all done well in school and are going to college.  Now it’s my turn. My children want to be proud of me and so they have encouraged me to get my GED. I’m working hard on my classes so I can pass.”
