    He said, “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it” (John 14:13-14).

  • There are a multitude of reasons that a student struggles academically, but the most detrimental is the lack of confidence. It is with hope that two recent graduates at JCTC Trimble County Adult Education prove to others that the power to overcome lies within yourself. Kelsie Metz and Deborah Thompson, both struggled with a lack of confidence and uncertainty, but walked away with a diploma in their hands.
    “Many people said I would not amount to anything. Getting a GED was the place to start,” Kelsie said.
