Seeds of Literacy alumni Reginald Latten wins 2019 GED Graduate of the Year Award

Seeds of Literacy is proud to celebrate the accomplishments of Reginald “Reggie” Latten of Cleveland, one of Seeds’ GED graduates, who was honored with the 2019 GED Graduate of the Year Award during the GED Testing Service Annual Conference in Chicago in July.

Latten received a $1,000 scholarship for post-secondary education. He was one of five award winners.

After attempting to prepare for the mathematics section of the GED on his own, Latten committed to working with the tutors at Seeds and utilized Khan Academy while at home and in between class sessions. He logged 169 hours on the Khan Academy site from Dec. 1, 2018 to April 30, 2019.

Like many GED students, transportation was often a challenge for Latten, when he would travel 90 minutes to attend morning classes and frequently stayed through Seeds’ afternoon classes.

Less than a month after receiving his GED credential, Latten said he he wanted to “embrace his future now” and enrolled in Bryant & Stratton College.

Congratulations to Reggie for all the rewards his hard work has brought him!
