Five move forward with generous scholarships

May 3—The Ector County Library is now sponsoring Gale Excel Adult High School scholarships. They are virtual, self-paced, and for those over 21. It is also a second chance in many cases for these folks to graduate with a nationally accredited diploma.

This is not a GED program. Each are priced at $1,100.

There were originally 250 applicants narrowed down to the following five: Marybell B., Alex F., April L., Erika S. and anonymous. The Ector County Library celebrates their achievements in the program thus far and cheer them on for their journey ahead.

However, with the new Excel program already at full capacity, the library will continue to temporarily pause the application process due to the very high interest in this program. As the library gains access to additional scholarships, they will re-open applications in the future. The library cannot provide an estimated date on when that will happen, but watch the website for further info.
