Meridian Tech awarded OK Community Cares grant for AEFL program.

OK Community Cares awarded a $1,000 grant to Meridian Technology Center in Stillwater for the Adult Education and Family Literacy (AEFL) program.

This grant will assist students in the AEFL program at Meridian Technology Center to cover the cost of the required exams. Since last year, the cost of exams has increased and extra financial assistance could help relieve financial stress from students and allow them to graduate from the program. Once students complete their coursework and pass the exams, they have the opportunity to enroll in a program at Meridian Technology Center, enter the workforce and/or obtain a higher paying job.

The AEFL program is offered all year long with day time and evening class options. To learn more about the program visit www.meridiantech.edu/admissions/ged/.
