HiSET Exam Success — Meet Itzell

Itzell Camacho was one of the last four people admitted into the Goodwill adult education class in Lafayette, La., just as everything was shutting down due to COVID-19.

Itzel continued to prepare for her test using paper materials and online prep programs available through the Lafayette Parish Library. She also contacted her instructor, Susan Dollison, when she needed assistance or clarification on skills she was having difficulty with.

Itzell worked toward her goal during the pandemic and passed her HiSET tests once testing began again. Itzell's continued determination paid off and she received her high school equivalency diploma on July 29, 2020.Congratulations on a job well done!
