GED changes one East Texan's life

An East Texas man says that without his GED, he would not be working in television.

The Literacy Council of Tyler showed off their new classrooms at the First Presbyterian Church. Their many success stories include Chris Henderson. He earned his GED in 2002. He now works in television production.

"Its not just a place to come sit around and read a book," said said Chris Henderson. "They actually interact with you, help you out.its been years since I got my GED but I'm still good friends with them. They're just extremely good people and they're good people to know."

The literacy council organizes the classrooms and provides teachers free of charge to sixteen to twenty-one year olds needing a GED.
