It’s never too late to start learning—and there are compelling reasons not to put learning off. Adult education in our community is found in many forms, from the workforce development programs at Ivy Tech Community College and WorkOne, to the professional development and corporate training required by many career fields. A number of adults in Monroe County also lack the basic education skills needed to live independently or complete the TASC, Indiana’s high school equivalency exam—and there are learning opportunities for them too. WFHB correspondent Ryan Stacy at Monroe County Public Library has more.
The community is invited to support adult literacy at the 34th annual Quiz Bowl, a four-night trivia tournament that raises funds and awareness for VITAL. It’s April 24th through the 27th at Monroe County Public Library, and can be enjoyed live on Community Access Television Services or as part of the audience at the event. Audience admission is free, and costumes are encouraged. More information on forming or sponsoring a Quiz Bowl team can be found at (812) 349-3173, or online at MCPL dot info slash Quiz Bowl.
