Adult Education
General Educational Development (GED) classes are available to interested employees.

Our workplace and residential communities reflect differences in ability, age, ethnicity, gender, national origin, political affiliation, physical appearance, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status and veteran status. These qualities represent our belief that every individual deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

"A spirit of harmony can only survive if each of us remembers, when bitterness and self-interest seem to prevail, that we share a common destiny." - Barbara JordanFigures of Diversity
