According to an old saying, “When a door closes, a window opens.”  Lakiya Echols, a student in NDEC’s Youth Hi-SET program, has found that to be true.  She lost her job last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but found a renewed purpose at NDEC.

“I attended many different GED programs, but I never finished,” says Lakiya.  “But once I lost my job, I was determined to get my GED.  I was Googling programs when I came across NDEC.”  It was a perfect fit.  “My first day here,” she states, “I knew I was going to accomplish what I wanted to do.”

Lakiya began classes in July and will graduate in June.   Even though classes are being held remotely, she’s found a sense of community with her fellow students.  “My classmates are amazing,” she says.  “I enjoy being in class with them.”
