Congratulations adult education essay winners!

What Does Adult Education Mean to Me?


Students at El Monte-Rosemead Adult School were asked to draft essays that were framed around the prompt "What Does Adult Education Mean to Me?". We had a lot of wonderful and inspiring essays submitted. A committee composed of our staff was then given a nearly impossible task, to choose a few essays to be publicly recognized. We are proud of all our students, and want to congratulate all the students that submitted an essay. Picking only a few essays was very difficult to do, but after a lot of deliberation our committee finally agreed on 13. 

Thank you to all our students for sharing your inspiring stories with all of us. It's an honor to have such hard working students attending our school. 


Below you can find a PDF with the selected essays, please feel free to read our students' wonderful stories.
