Success Stories
What's Your Story?

Jesse Schwartz

Adult Education: The Pathway to Success!

Withlacoochee Technical College (WTC) is proud to share an adult education success story. 

Jesse Schwartz had tried to earn his GED® credential many times before enrolling at Withlacoochee Technical College (WTC) in February 2017, and frankly, it just hadn’t worked out for him.   This time, however, was different.  At 27 years old, it had been a long time since he had been in school.  Various complications in his life had prevented him from obtaining his high school diploma.  In fact, the last grade Jesse completed in a formal school setting was seventh grade.   After many years in the restaurant business and seeking to make a change, Jesse realized he wanted a career in a trade.  The first step was  to earn his high school diploma, no mean feat for someone out of school for fifteen years. 

Jesse passed all four GED® tests within two months of enrolling.  He credits the staff in the Adult Education Department at WTC with providing a positive and supportive atmosphere.  The local United Way provided a vital support network for Jesse as well.  The next decision Jesse had to make was what career did he want to pursue and where to get the necessary training.  At first, he considered working in the amusement park industry in animatronics but needed to get portable, in-demand training in a short period of time.  He visited the Electricity program at WTC and decided that was his best option.

Jesse enrolled in Electricity in August 2017 and completed the program in May 2018. He is looking forward to a high-wage, in-demand career where he can achieve sufficient financial stability to pursue his dream of a family and a home.  For Jesse, obtaining his GED® credential opened many doors and has given him more options than he ever dreamed.  Jesse says that without the GED® credential and subsequent training, you are restrained in where you can work and how much you can earn. 

Although Jesse’s past was difficult and there were times he struggled, he doesn’t dwell on the past. For Jesse, looking forward is his only option and he uses his past only to inspire a better future for himself.  He believes (and is proof) that if you put your mind to it, anything is possible. 

Jesse’s advice to anyone in need of their GED® credential: “It is never too late.”
