GED Graduate Selected as Finalist for State Award
Nash Community College General Educational
Development (GED) graduate Gregory Sumler of Rocky Mount was recently
selected as the runner up for the statewide Angela Moore Trogdon Student
of the Year Award.
The award was established in memory of Angela Moore Trogdon, former
Basic Skills/Human Resources Development Director at Randolph Community
College and Guilford Technical Community College who lost her battle
with breast cancer. Ms. Moore Trogdon was a member of a community
college Basic Skills staff for years and a vocal advocate and trainer
for Basic Skills across the state.
Sumler was selected to represent Nash Community College as the 2011
Angela Moore Trogden Student of the Year nominee because of his hard
work and perseverance. He excelled through personal trials and loss and
remained dedicated to his education. "Around the time I began to allow
negative aspects and influences into my life, I heard about the GED
Program offered by Nash Community College. I signed up immediately,
because I knew it was the only source I had left to pursue my original
dreams and goals," Gregory Sumler said. Click here to read the full story.
