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 4 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 4 essays was very difficult to do, but after a lot of deliberation our committee finally agreed on 4. 

Congratulations to German Delagado, Angelina Mata, HuiWang, and Herlinda Rasmussen; thank you 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 slideshow with the selected essays, (the slides automatically advance every 30 seconds), please feel free to pause the slideshow to read our students wonderful stories.
