Adult Education Instructor retires – July 2010
Bay Minette, Alabama— After 15 years with Faulkner State Community College’s Adult Education Program, Instructor Mary Joyce Freeman has retired. Freeman, who began her teaching career in 1968 as a first grade teacher, started her second career in adult education in 1995.
“It has been the most rewarding job I’ve ever had. It’s been such a pleasure working with everyone and getting to know all the staff members at Faulkner State,” Freeman said.
During her time in the Adult Education Program, Freeman encouraged hundreds of students to obtain their GED. According to recent information from the state’s GED Administrator’s Office, Faulkner State’s GED pass rate is 79%, which is above the state average.
“Mary Joyce is an inspiration to those around her, and she will be greatly missed,” Ken Adams, Director of Adult Education at Faulkner State said.
