SCC, Harrah’s help workers earn GEDsWritten by Admin
Harrah’s Casino has partnered with Southwestern Community College to provide free GED training to Harrah’s employees.
Classes are taught at the casino from 2-9 p.m. Thursdays and from 3-8 p.m. Mondays at SCC’s Cherokee Center.
Travis Boisclair, a table games host, dropped out of high school in the 10th grade.
“At Harrah’s they give you the chance to move up with the corporation, but you can’t if you don’t have your GED,” he explained. He said that he is getting his GED to set an example for his son. “Mainly what I want him to learn is don’t give up,” said Boisclair.
“It’s not your traditional classroom,” said SCC Instructor Jean Bockstahler. “Here, everyone operates on their own strengths and weaknesses — and at their own pace.” 828.497.8886
