(Bradenton, FL—May 15, 2015) Manatee Technical College inducted 26 students into the National Adult Education Honor Society on May 14, 2015. The ceremony took place at Bayshore High School Auditorium.
This was the first induction ceremony for the school as Manatee Technical College, rather than Manatee Technical Institute. It is the first time evening students are included in the honors.
The induction ceremony was an hour filled with heart-warming stories of perseverance and achievement. Family members, friends and instructors pinned each of the inductees.
The students chosen for this honor are in the top two percent of their class. The Manatee adult education program serves over 1,300 students.
About half the inductees are working towards their GEDs, and the other half are learning English as a secondary language.
The chapter is named for Lee Carter Brown, a strong advocate of literacy programs.
