OTC’s GED program
Ken Bryant, Chief GED® Examiner at Ogeechee Technical College, recently received notification that the Official GED testing center at the College was one of only three small-sized centers in Georgia to have the largest growth in the number of GED test-takers between calendar years 2008 and 2009. Kim Lee, Director of the GED Testing program for the State of Georgia, stated in her notification to Bryant, “your accomplishment and commitment to GED testing is significant and an inspiration for others to follow.”
Bryant is responsible for coordinating Ogeechee Tech’s GED testing and operates the Assessment Center located on the College’s main campus. “This is an honor and I appreciate being recognized for this accomplishment,” stated Bryant. OTC president, Dr. Dawn Cartee, stated, “We are very proud of Ken and all the good work he does. Our success in the growth of test-takers for the GED examination is primarily due to his hard work and dedication to this program.”
The GED test, or General Educational Development test, offers those who have not completed high school the opportunity to prove their level of knowledge and receive a GED certificate which is the equivalent of a high school diploma. “Students leave high school for a variety of reasons. One misconception is that a student who seeks a GED has failed or been expelled, and often those are not the reasons at all,” stated Bryant.
