The Peoria Park District is hosting its annual graduation ceremony for 11 adult learners.
The students recently completed the Peoria Park District Foundation’s free GED program, the Moonlight Coalition, for students who dropped out of high school.
One of those graduates, Bernell Harvey, dropped out 10 years ago. He enrolled in ELITE's re-entry program because he "wanted to make my mom proud." Through that initiative, he met instructor Hedy Elliott, who encouraged him to pursue a GED.
