BHC Adult Education students join honor society

Twenty-four Black Hawk College Adult Education students recently were inducted into the local chapter of the National Adult Education Honor Society (NAEHS) at the college’s Community Education Center in downtown Kewanee.

They included:

  • Computer Literacy/Tech Savvy program – Shannon Hernandez, Janelle Leaf, Aimee Peach, Lisa Schoonover, April Self and Carla Troutwine, all from Kewanee; Lauri Pritchard of Geneseo; Patrick Schaffer of Neponset; and Mary Streitmatter of Wyoming.

Inductees received a NAEHS certificate, lapel pin and letters of recommendation for potential employers and for financial assistance should they wish to continue their education.

The NAEHS provides recognition to Adult Education students who demonstrate dependable attendance, cooperation and a solid work ethic. Students are recommended for membership by teachers based upon these attributes.

The local Delta Kappa Gamma Honor Society, Omega Chapter 24, hosted the June 25 induction.

The local chapter of the NAEHS was established at the Community Education Center in 2009 with the assistance of the Bi-State Literacy Council.

The chapter inducted 12 founding members at its first induction ceremony in July 2010, 15 members in 2011 and 17 members in 2012.
