NIACC Hosts HSED Graduation

The 2018 High School Equivalency Diploma (formerly GED®) graduation ceremony was held at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 6 in the Activity Center on the NIACC campus.

Three student speakers shared their journeys with the guests, and the NIACC Foundation also awarded NIACC scholarships to top-scoring graduates. A reception for graduates, families, friends, and supporters was held in the Activity Center immediately following the ceremony.

HSED graduates must successfully complete the battery of five tests on the HiSET® exam to obtain their high school equivalency diploma from the Iowa Department of Education. The program helps people from a variety of age groups and backgrounds reach this crucial goal.

Forty-seven graduates from a number of communities in North Iowa were recognized at the ceremony.
