Two Victoria College adult education students were honored Feb. 6 at the annual Texas Association for Literacy & Adult Education (TALAE) awards dinner in Corpus Christi.

Llozanira Cruz received the English as a Second Language Student Persistence Award for the South Central region. She was nominated by her instructor, Debbie Janysek, and interviewed by Tiffany Johnson, VC Adult Education Center director. Cruz received a $500 cash award for her dedication to English classes.

Lacey Bowman received the TALAE Academic Award for the highest GED test scores in the South Central region.  She was nominated by the adult education center staff and will receive $800 per semester to apply towards her tuition and fees at Victoria College.  Bowman is currently enrolled in the welding program offered through VC’s Workforce & Continuing Education Department.

“The TALAE organization is a group that recognizes the hard work and persistence required to return to school and complete educational goals,” Johnson said.  “We are proud of all of the students and glad to see these two honored for their accomplishments,”

Adult Basic Education courses at Victoria College cover basic academic subjects to help adult students improve their skills in preparation to take the GED and reach a college ready level. Obtaining a GED and enhancing basic skills helps ensure working adults are able to remain in the workforce and improves individual earning potential.
