Student Recognition

  I, Eunice B. Washington, am a full time wife, mother, and grandmother. I’m also a full-time licensed and ordained minister. I enjoy encouraging others, which I often do through the operation of Loving Care Ministries, which I am founder. After 41 years, I decided to fulfill a void in my life and return to the classroom to obtain my most desired high school diploma. I never dreamed that in less than 12 weeks I would have accomplished this task. But thanks be to God, the teaching staff, and belief that “All things are possible if you only believe,” for now I can say, “It’s done”.
  My name is Ervin Smith; I was born and raised in rural Pike County. Having been raised on a farm and working, I didn’t receive much education. I left school at the age of 16 years old, I took up an occupation as a truck driver, I did that for 32 years. Life now consist of so much technology that it takes an education to keep up. So now I’m attempting to further my education at Summit Learning Center. The staff encourages me to keep moving forward in this new adventure in my life. I encourage all who haven’t accomplished their goals in life to attend Summit Learning Center.

My name is Theresa Corkern. I’m 18 years old. I live in Progress, Mississippi. In my future, I want to go to college to be an accountant. I also want somebody to settle down with and have a family. I want to finish college and open a business with my friend.

Adult Education

  Our adult education programs include basic literacy, workplace literacy, preparation for GED, and other services that provide adults and out of school youth opportunities at enhancing skills, improving parenting, and assistance related to employment and self-sufficiency.

Our goals are to ensure that adults needing basic education have access to services. We want to prepare students for success in their next steps: college or further training at the workplace ensuring them the opportunity to be productive and prosperous members of our community.

The purpose of the Building Partnerships and Resources in the Community (BPARC) is to support the Adult Education efforts:

 To improve the quality and positive outcome of the family effort
 To support the developing and delivering of high-quality family services and systems

The Adult Education and BPARC partners working together will:

 Identify resources that are strengths in the community
 Identify the gaps in the support within the community
 Plan ways to bridge the gaps so that families can move forward in their education

The BPARC services will work in a collaborative effort to address the essential family needs in our community.
