Before, I was not even aware that there was adult education (AE) in our district. However, after a few minutes of listening to people tell the board members how important the program is to them, I became an avid supporter of AE. I also realized how strong-willed the people in our district are. It really made me proud that despite the economic condition, the housing and job market crash (especially in our area), and all of the other problems, so many adults are taking the initiative to learn more. Also, it was reassuring to see that so many people cared about their children; most of the people who implored the school board to continue the Adult education program did so because they wanted to learn in order to help their children.
After, the group took a large panoramic picture (the one used on the ILC website). I have been looking forward to this for a long time because I finally felt that I am really part of the this wonderful organization.
I enjoyed this enlightening and amazing experience completely and I would really like to thank the ILC again.
