Education: The Pathway to Opportunity

Logan Holdren received his high school equivalency after studying in Catholic Charities’ Adult Education program

Education is the pathway to opportunity, especially for someone like Logan.

Logan dropped out of high school in 11th grade. “I didn’t like school,” he said. “Then, my mom got sick… so, I quit.” Logan turned to drugs, and things spiraled out of control.

When he discovered the Adult Education classes offered by CCWVa’s McDowell Learning Center, Logan felt hopeful. He completed High School Equivalency classes with Catholic Charities’ Adult Education Instructor, Michelle Montz, while receiving treatment for addiction at Southern Highlands.

His high school equivalency diploma allowed him to participate in the WV Transition Jobs Program. Logan started his job in January!
