A new start in just six weeks


The CollegeAmerica GED program puts Kyle Nez, 22, back on track seven years after becoming a father.

In a hallway at CollegeAmerica, 55 large gold stars are in rows on a dark background. Hand-printed names on the stars indicate tile “All Stars” that have graduated from their GED program since September 2011. The most recent graduates finished just this past week.

Kyle Nez graduated from that program in January 2012. A small ad in the newspaper started him thinking about it.

“I woke up one day and decided to get my butt in gear,” Nez said. “I stayed here for six weeks.”
