Laura Bowman

I have always wanted to achieve the goal to get my GED. I only completed 9th grade when I was in school. In 2006 I started working on my GED. 

I was really slow about getting into studying and failed my first two tests. I felt bad about the tests and didn’t come back to the Adult Education Center until the following summer. I think I took a long vacation. 

I started coming to school regularly and have now passed all of my tests. I have enjoyed all the time I have put toward getting my GED. 

My teachers always said, “Laura, you can do it.” They were right! 

Laura received her GED in June 2008. She is currently (2010-2011)  working in transportation for the Carroll County School System.
