Thank you for being a part of celebrating our GED graduates and their achievements during this year’s GED Grad Week that took place during the week of May 17-21.
Throughout obtaining their credential, this year’s GED graduates overcame many obstacles and persevered throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This annual event is an opportunity to make our GED graduates feel important and congratulated. We also want our GED graduates to discover and acknowledge the community of support for them now and as they pursue their future goals.
Unlike previous years, we celebrated GED graduates on our social media platforms for an entire week instead of just one day on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. This year’s event included videos with congratulatory messages from adult educators, and celebratory messages and stories of triumph from GED graduates. We also interviewed educators and their GED graduates highlighting the important relationship they have during the GED journey. This was our first year asking graduates across the country to share their names to showcase in a special Grad Week graphic.
Our GED Grad Week event drove the most engagements ever and reached 5x more users and twice the number of responses compared to previous years. Our Facebook event page received a total 7,500 views and reached a total of 56,300 users. We also had 40 adult education programs participate throughout the week.
Thank you for helping make this year’s event another success! We look forward to celebrating our graduates again next year.
