South Puget Sound Community College is joining other community and technical colleges state-wide in celebrating Adult Literacy Week.
“Washington’s economic growth and prosperity depends on our ability to make education and job training universally accessible to citizens of all ages and backgrounds,” Gov. Christine Gregoire said in a proclamation recognizing Oct. 15-20 as Adult Literacy Week across the state.
Critical to improving the job skills and basic skills of Washingtonians, South Puget Sound Community College, as well as other community and technical colleges in the state, offer a variety of Adult Basic Education programs, from GED and IBEST (Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training), to English as a Second Language, and more.
Education plays a key role in supporting the economic vitality of Washington state, and South Puget Sound Community College plays an important part in that education process, helping people build better skills in search of better jobs to help build a better Thurston County.
