Coming soon: College courses here in Kermit!

For the first time in ABLE Families history, we’re preparing to make college credit courses available here at our Kermit site.  Thanks to a new collaboration with Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College, it looks like that will be starting here this fall.

We had an initial meeting today for interested local folks.  Five attended — which isn’t bad, considering we’re a community of 200, we’ve had some serious rainstorms today, and the county is one of four currently under a state of emergency declared by the governnor!  Molly, our adult education coordinator, is aware of several others who intended to come. 

Local residents who might be interested in this opportunity can still participate.  Class sizes will be limited to 10. 

Those who are should attend our next meeting: Wednesday, June 23, at 1:00 pm.  Those who attend will learn about and work on applications for enrollment and financial aid.  (Bring your 2009 tax returns if you have them.)  We’ll also talk further about courses to be offered.  Or if you know someone else in the area who might be interested, please pass this information on to them.

Call Sr. Pat at 304-393-4987 for more information.
