‘Return to Learn’ event offers guidance for adults ready to continue their education

 Adult learners can explore opportunities at Ivy Tech Kokomo

 KOKOMO, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College is inviting area residents to a “Return to Learn” seminar Wednesday, Oct. 14. The event is aimed at encouraging adults interested in continuing their education, no matter where they are in their pursuit, and to offer the information and resources they need to get back on track.

Two area residents who returned to Ivy Tech as adult students and took their degrees into successful careers – Kokomo Housing Authority Chief Executive Officer Debra Cook and Logansport Memorial Hospital obstetrics nurse and Ivy Tech nursing instructor Jill Stewart-Walley – will be sharing their stories as examples of what can be achieved.

The event is scheduled from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Ivy Tech’s Kokomo Campus, 1815 E. Morgan St. For more information or to make reservations for the free seminar, call Sarah King, assistant director of admissions for Ivy Tech’s Kokomo Region, at 765-459-0561, ext. 7252, or contact her by email at sking16@ivytech.edu.

“We know there are a lot of working adults who may not have completed high school or who started college and never reached their degree. And we know there are a lot of challenges for working adults, especially those with families, to find the time, money and energy to go back to school,” King said. “But we also know the impact a high school equivalency diploma and higher education credentials can have on job satisfaction and earning power. This session is designed to share what Ivy Tech has to offer – everything from short-term certificate programs to technical certificates in high-demand fields to associate degrees that transfer to four-year universities.”
