Adult education group helps students achieve high school diplomas

More than 30 adult students graduated with their high school diplomas this week with the help of the Kansas School for Effective Learning – known as KANSEL.

The adult education non-profit hosted its semi-annual commencement ceremony Friday evening at the Courtyard Marriott in Old Town Wichita. The graduates – including 14 Spanish GED-earners from the Wichita school district’s Multilingual Educations Services program _ earned their diplomas after passing the GED test, KANSEL officials said in a news release.

KANSEL, a GED testing center, provides GED preparation, private tutoring, basic skills and computer training, test proctoring and English as a Second Language courses. GED preparation is offered daytime and evenings at 2212 E. Central Ave. in Wichita.
