The family of Adrianne Reynolds recently donated $1,800 to the Black Hawk College Quad-Cities Foundation to help pay for youth GED® testing for BHC students.

Adrianne’s father, Tony Reynolds, and stepmother, Joanna Reynolds, presented the check to Glenda Nicke, dean of adult and continuing education, and Zenaida Landeros, executive director of the Black Hawk College Quad-Cities Foundation.

Adrianne was a 16-year-old student in the college’s Optional Education GED® program when she was killed in January 2005.

Since her death, the Reynolds family has raised thousands of dollars to help other high school-age students pay for their GED® testing fees.

The college has issued more than 500 GED® vouchers using donations received in Adrianne’s memory. A voucher covers one $30 GED® test. Students may receive a scholarship for one or more of the four GED® tests (math, language arts, social studies and science).
