OVER 100 STUDYING AT HCC FOR HS DIPLOMA Henderson Community College is successfully fulfilling one of the major functions charged to the community college. The Adult Basic Education Program enrolled 129 adults in classes last November, and 104 were still active in May. Many of these were high school dropouts who hoped to successfully complete the General Education Development (GED) test and thereby earn a high school equivalency certificate. A number of them then plan to enroll in such programs at the college as social work technology, forestry and wood tech- nology, management technology, accounting, professional secretary- ship, laboratory technician, and nursing. Classes also were organized in Union and Webster counties, and supervised by the college. In Union county, 42 persons met each Thursday in the high school building at Morganfield, and in Webster county, there were 15 in the class meeting each Wednesday at the Dixon H-U-W Center. The program pro- vides a general education class aimed at providing the basic skills in math, reading and English that will enable a high school dropout to pass the GED test. Once the student obtains the GED certificate, he is eligible to enroll in any class at the Henderson college. 13. TWO COLLEGES CONDUCT SEMINARS FOR OLDER PERSONS Programs aimed at older persons have been held at two com- munity colleges. A six-session seminar concluded in May at Ashland Community College for residents of that area, with discussion topics including social security benefits, taxes, citizenship responsibili- ties, and contemporary art and literature. A total of 67 persons took part in a Living and Learning School at Somerset Community College last semester. The Rev. L. D. Fisher, local minister, and Kenneth Bean of the college were commended on their "outstanding job" in conducting the program at Somerset.
