The Office of Continuing Education Services at the Trinity River campus recently received a Community Service award from GED Testing Services in Washington, D.C. The award recognized the Continuing Education Services team for its availability to test a high number of students for the GED in November.
 
Interest in GED testing has grown due to test changes that take effect this month, which include switching to computer testing from paper, content focused on career and college readiness, immediate performance feedback and the ability to test in the four key areas separately.
 
Nicole Chestang, executive vice president of GED Testing Services, presented a plaque to the Trinity River Continuing Education Services team on November 21. It states:
 
“In recognition of the dedicated support and service to adult learners in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, demonstrated by the leadership and staff of the Office of Continuing Services, who work tirelessly to give a second chance to adults seeking to earn the State of Texas High School Equivalency Certificate by providing access to education and GED testing.”
 
Chief Examiner and Director for Continuing Education Services, Tiffany Lopez-Hamilton, worked with three other team members to test more than 800 students during four weekends in November. “There was a need and we accepted the challenge to serve our community,” said Lopez-Hamilton. “Each GED team member played an intricate role in the GED events testing, ranging from registering students, administering the exam as well as day-to-day functions of the office.”
 
Robert Muñoz, Ed.D., vice president for Continuing Education at Trinity River, concurred. “My team has done great work meeting the needs of students and our community partners with efficiency and professionalism. We look forward to continuing to meet those needs.”
