Literacy Council Students Get Their GED

   It's graduation day for some students from the Literacy Council of Tyler. More than 40 graduates got their GED tonight. The students were in the program for three to 18 months and came from all areas of Smith County, from Hawkins to Frankston.

   The day proved you don't have to be a teenager to get your GED. While most of the students were young, a few of were in their fifties. Some of the students said they're now going to enter into certificate programs and others will enroll in Tyler Junior College.

   Many say now, they'll get promotions at work.
