SOPHIA, WV (WOAY) – West Virginia Adult Education took home the trophy for best float in the town of Sophia’s Christmas parade on Saturday.
With this being their first time the float was in the parade, Adult Education was hoping to get the word out about the many programs the school offers through their free education services.
“We offer customer service, computer essentials, Microsoft Office certifications,” says Lucy Lester, an Adult Education Instructor.
“Normally, you would have to pay hundreds if not thousands for these certifications, but we offer them free to the public, and we also offer their high school equivalency exam if they didn’t get to finish high school,” she says.
The school is planning to make their float even bigger and better in Sophia’s Christmas parade next year.
If you’re looking to further your education as an adult and not sure where to start, West Virginia Adult Education just may offer the next steps you need to take to get there.
