Adult Education to hold orientation across the District


The Holmes Community College Adult Education program will hold orientation sessions throughout the district July 7-Aug. 21. Orientation will begin at 8:30 a.m.

The Adult Basic Education classes are open to the public for those who have not completed high school or wish to increase their functioning level to enter college, training or the job market. The Office of Adult Education at the Mississippi Community College Board is encouraging interested persons to get involved in the programs through their Skill UP Mississippi initiative. Through various programs such as Smart Start and High School Equivalency (HSE), Skill UP Mississippi is helping people launch careers, which in turn strengthens the state workforce and creates an opportunity for economic development. The programs at Holmes can help adults gain skills they need to be competitive in the job market and increase their earning potential.
