Student Testimonial

“The East Texas Literacy Council has been a wonderful part of my life. I dropped out of school to work and help my mother out when she was going through a divorce. I had always wanted to go back and get my GED, especially when I started having kids so I could better myself.  But I didn’t want my kids to get up in age and say, “Well, Daddy never graduated.”  I don’t want them to think that it’s ok to just drop out of school.

As I had more children, I started needing more money. I had plenty of great job opportunities, but they would all say, “You need a high school diploma or GED.” So, I had better do better for myself, my wife, and 3 babies. I didn’t know what I was going to do.  Then, I heard of the ETLC.  The teachers here are great and believe in me when I didn’t believe in myself.  They stuck with me until the end and then some.  ETLC is a great place for anyone who is willing to learn.  I promise that just coming here is the next step to a lifelong career or just to make you feel complete, like I do now. I really appreciate everyone here and what they have done for me.”
