Students enrolled in any Basic Skills classes are eligible for membership. Nominated by their instructors, students will be selected for membership based on a culmination of outstanding attendance, cooperation, and self-reliance. NAEHS will provide these students with a certificate of membership, lapel pin, and letters of recommendation for employment and financial assistance for higher education.
NAEHS members, wearing a gold honor cord and tassel, will be recognized at the 2005 Basic Skills Graduation ceremony in September.
"It is the goal of BCC's Basic Skills Department to acknowledge the effort that it takes for adults to return to school and complete their high school education," said Gwen Jacobs, Basic Skills coordinator.
"Graduating as an honor student and receiving recommendation letters from a national organization will hopefully give our graduates a competitive edge as fewer than five percent of all adult education students are selected for NAEHS membership," she added.
