Austin, TX – May 3, 2006 – Christina Chapman never imagined she would have to quit school to care for her mother who had fallen ill. She also never imagined she would be on her way to enrolling in credit courses at Austin Community College after graduating at the top of her General Education Development (GED) class and receiving a scholarship from ACC’s Alpha Gamma Pi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the International Honor Society for Two Year Colleges.

Chapman and 34 other top GED graduates from ACC’s Adult Education Department will be honored through an induction to the National Adult Education Honor Society (NAEHS) on Thursday, May 4 at 6:30 p.m. in room 201 at the ACC Highland Business Center, 5930 Middle Fiskville Rd.

Adult students inducted into NAEHS scored an average of 550 or higher on the high school equivalency exam. All GED graduates inducted into the honor society become lifelong members and receive a certificate, a lapel pin and a letter of recommendation for employment from NAEHS and a letter of recommendation for financial assistance to continue their education.

Keynote speaker for the ceremony is the Honorable Richard Scott, Travis County justice of the peace, precinct 1.
