Vicki Leach never imagined herself taking college classes. But since receiving her GED in May, she said her future plans include taking classes, starting with basic courses.
The mother of nine spent much of her life as a stay-at-home mom, volunteering in classrooms. After working a bit with a speech pathologist but then finding herself unemployed for a year, Leach, now a grandmother of three, knew she needed to make a change.
One day while at the unemployment office, she noticed a GED class on one of the calendars.
“I thought to myself, now is the time,” she said.
