Victoria College’s Adult Education Department was recognized Nov. 30 with the first-place Adult Education & Literacy Co-enrollment Award at the 2023 Texas Workforce Conference in Houston.

The award, accompanied by a $75,000 performance-based grant award, acknowledges VC for having the highest number in the state of adult education students co-enrolled in workforce services offered by the Local Workforce Development Board.

“We are proud of our Adult Education Department for receiving this well-deserved recognition,” said Dr. Jennifer Kent, VC President. “This achievement highlights Victoria College’s commitment to serving adult learners and empowering them to achieve upward economic mobility.”

In partnership with Workforce Solutions Golden Crescent, VC offers adult learners opportunities to prepare for the GED, improve their English proficiency, and earn an industry-recognized credential leading to higher earning potential.

“We are grateful for our partnership with Workforce Solutions Golden Crescent,” said Tiffany Johnson, VC’s Adult Education Director. “It is truly rewarding to see our adult learners take advantage of free services to enhance their skills, continue their education, and secure better jobs.”
