A tip of the mortar board
Hats off to the more than two dozen people who pursued general educational development and received their diplomas Thursday at Vanguard Tech Center in Fremont.
An additional tip of the cap goes to Amy Blackford of Tiffin and Donna Collet of Carey, who received diplomas this week after finishing their GED work in May 2013. At the commencement, they told students to stay in school and get a diploma, and encouraged dropouts to return to school and earn a GED.
Blackford and Collet have strived to improve themselves and have shown others how to do so, too.
