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.
program is available to Cobb County residents through the Workforce Innovation
and Opportunity Act. Participants must meet eligibility requirements in order
