Warden (A) Jerome Price congratulated the 61 students who received GEDs or Career Technical Education Certificates in Auto Body Repair, Building Maintenance, Computer Literacy, Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) or American Sign Language.
The HVAC and Building Maintenance programs are National Center for Construction Education and Research certified. The certifications are recognized worldwide in the public sector and by labor unions.
