BOSS Program Honors GED Graduates

MARIETTA, GA (December 17, 2020) - WorkSource Cobb BOSS Young Professionals program, a career pathway program targeted to young adults ages 16-24, honored GED graduates from its 2020 cohort on Friday, December 18, via a virtual ceremony followed by a drive-through celebration. Guest speakers including the Chairman of the Cobb County Board of Commissioners, Mike Boyce, and Chair-elect, Lisa Cupid, shared their inspirational wisdom and congratulations.

The graduation ceremony marks a turning point for the students who dropped out of the traditional education system. "These students should be proud of everything they have accomplished this year. They passed a difficult battery of tests during a pandemic that brought on many challenges including lack of technology to attend virtual classes. By sticking with our program, we are able to supply them with the tools they needed to be successful," states LaDonna Huggins, BOSS program manager. "With their continued determination, they will all go on to do great things." All graduates will receive continued support from the BOSS program. In addition to education and career coaching, they are eligible to receive up to $10,000 in scholarships for continued education.

The program is available to Cobb County residents through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. Participants must meet eligibility requirements in order to receive services. Anyone interested can contact WorkSource Cobb BOSS program by calling 770-528-4300 or emailing bossinfo@cobbworks.org
