Ms. Belinda Mitchell, Center Director for the Alfred Saliba Family Services Center, will deliver the keynote address.
According to Wallace President Linda C. Young, GED graduates will be prepared to pursue higher education or to move into the local workforce with greater earning power than those without a high school diploma.
