Congratulations to Ora Lee Rivers of Illinois for passing her GED test at the age of 80. Pretty impressive.
She persevered in studying for the GED test off and on during the past 20 years in her busy life. Like many people, she found the math part of the GED test to be difficult.
And like many people, she found GED classes locally. In her case, she attended GED classes at the St. Clair County Regional Office of Education located near Belleville, IL. And like many GED students, she started and stopped and started again.
But unlike many GED students who might have used age as an excuse for not passing the GED test, Ora Lee Rivers kept studying, took the test, and passed.
An amazing story of perseverance in pursuit of an education.
For the full story, here’s hoping that you can learn from Ora Lee Rivers.
