Join the Celebration! GED Grad Day is May 14th

Tomorrow’s the big day! Join us as we celebrate the accomplishments of GED graduates around the world during a virtual celebration. 

We’re asking you to help us by posting congratulatory messages and success stories on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #GEDGradDay. If you didn’t have a chance to submit your videos to us you can still share them online.

You should also RSVP for this year’s event on Facebook where we will be sharing messages and videos all day to highlight the life-changing impact of the GED credential while celebrating the hard work of all of our graduates.

This year we’re asking graduates to share “what’s next” now that they’ve earned their GED or share what they pursued once they became a GED graduate. We know the GED is often the first step to entering a college or certificate program and the career of their dreams and we’re excited to share their success with others. 

In the spirit of celebrating the endless possibilities of GED graduates, we’re debuting a  commencement video that shares the story of Dr. Kira Burt, a physicist and professor who is a proud GED and PhD graduate. The video will also feature messages from adult educators and GED Testing Service, as well as success stories from graduates.

Be sure to RSVP to our Facebook event and we’ll see you online tomorrow for #GEDGradDay!

  11. Hola mis valientes del GED!
    Les habla la Maestra Ximena y un poco apenada por no poder hacerles la celebración que se merecen.
    Pero como dice el refran: “Al mal tiempo, buena cara”… ya vendrán tiempos mejores, donde nos podremos reunir y celebrar a lo grande!
    Como siempre lo he dicho: “El éxito tiene un solo gran secreto: dedicacion, dedicación y dedicación”.
    Y ustedes lo demostraron. Lograron llegar a la meta, con entereza, disciplina y mucho esfuerzo.
    Para todos ustedes, los heroes de hoy y de toda la vida (para sus hijos). Felicitaciones Clase del 2020!
