GED gives students new direction

It was not until Algoma’s Connor Fritsch decided to get his General Education Diploma that he felt he could begin chasing his dreams of teaching.  Just over 300,000 students nationally took the GED test in 2017, which measures a student’s competency in five different areas. Fritsch decided he wanted to take his life into a new direction, so he started taking GED courses at the Luxemburg Regional Learning Center of Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. He says deciding to take that path was the best decision he could have made.


Instructor Nancie Brennan says attending GED classes is a great investment, especially since they are free.


Fritsch will continue his studies at NWTC before transitioning to UW-Green Bay where he hopes to major in education so he can become a history teacher. You can contact NWTC Luxemburg to learn when their next GED classes are taking place.
