Trinidad State GED student named Colorado Learner of the Year

Trinidad Campus / December 8, 2015


The Colorado Adult Educators Professional Association recently named Tess Granado of Raton as Colorado Learner of the Year. The adult education organization picks one outstanding and inspiring student each year for the award from all of Colorado.

“I lost my father three years ago so I had to drop out of school to work and support my family,” said Granado. “So this was the only way I could receive my diploma.” After her father’s death, she went to work to help support her mother and three siblings. In October of 2014 she enrolled in the Trinidad State Adult Education Program and has now passed three of the four tests required for a GED (General Educational Development). Only one test is left - Mathematics. She expects to take that test by February.

The Adult Education Program at Trinidad State is grant funded, so classes are free. There is a small fee to take the tests. For more information call Tammie Mack at 719 846-5640.
