Mother/Daughter get GED's

April 6, 2004

Thomasville - Lois Ezell has always liked cars, so it only seemed natural that she become an auto mechanic. But she couldn't find anyone to hire her without a high school diploma, so Lois got her GED and went back to school.

She says, "I was scared because I'd been out of school for 30 years. Just going back, I didn't think I could do it, but I pulled it off."

And Lois isn't the only one who decided to change her destiny. Her daughter, Jessie Ezell also got her GED, and is now in school at Southwest Georgia Technical College studying to become an accountant, something she never thought was possible.

"Since I've gotten this, I feel like I've achieved something. I've actually took tests and proved myself, and stuff like that. So I feel like I'm on cloud nine right now, cause I never thought I'd get it."

But both of them "got it" and are looking forward to what the future holds for the two of them. Lois and Jessie Ezell will both participate in a GED graduation ceremony held on April 29th at 7 PM at Central Middle School in Thomasville.
