LBWCC honors adult learners


LBW Community College (LBWCC) recently held a graduation ceremony in the MacArthur Conference Center in Opp to recognize the accomplishments of adult learners who passed the General Equivalency Development (GED) test at one of the College’s testing sites.

LBWCC Dean of Instruction Peggy Linton provided the commencement address, praising the graduates for their hard work and dedication in completing the milestone and urging them to continue the momentum of learning.

During the event, Dean of Student Affairs Judy Hall presented a one-year LBWCC scholarship to Tammy Jeffery of Opp for achieving the highest score among all the graduates.

Of the 120 adults who earned their high school equivalency diploma within the last year, about 20 participated in the commencement program. The total amount represented 12 counties, including Baldwin, Butler, Coffee, Covington, Crenshaw, Geneva, Montgomery, Pike, and Russell; and in Florida, Walton and Okaloosa counties.

LBWCC’s Adult Education Program is free and provides adults an academic assessment, the opportunity to study basic education (reading, writing, math, science and history), prepare for the GED test, obtain college preparatory classes, earn a career readiness certificate, or learn English as a second language.

Students work at their own speed on an individual basis and can enroll at any time of the year.  Day and evening classes are held in Andalusia, Florala, Greenville, Luverne and Opp.  Visit for more information.
