Dr. Sherry Zylka, President of BSCTC addressed the graduates with encouragement and the challenge to keep pursuing education.

Zylka stated, “And while we celebrate this diploma, I would be remiss if I did not take this opportunity to ask this necessary question: NOW WHAT? You probably could have guessed that I would urge you to go to college. And that is why I ask: now what?”

BSCTC looks forward to enrolling these recent Skills U graduates in classes for the fall semester. Because they are determined, confident in their abilities, and passionate about learning, Skills U graduates often earn college degrees and accomplish many great things.

Skills U is a statewide initiative to prepare students for college, help students obtain GEDs, improve basic skills, provide English as a Second Language courses, and prepare students for employment. Services are provided locally by school systems, community and technical colleges, community-based organizations, educational cooperatives, universities or local government.
