“By having a goal to increase literacy by over 50 percent, for Baldwin County that means we have to increase literacy for over 3,000 individuals by lowering our number of illiterate citizens through adults obtaining their GED and preventing high school dropouts,” Baxter said. “There are already 85 counties and two cities in Georgia that have been certified. Baldwin County was approved to become a CLCP member three years ago, and we’re at the first level of our certification.”
Baxter plans to attend the GED Awards luncheon Thursday, Oct. 3 during the fall OAE conference in Atlanta to receive the award.
