This week, we are launching four stories written by students from Morell, Prince Edward Island. As a special event you can read their stories as well as hear them.
Hallie MacKinnon is a student of the Morell Learning Center Adult Education program with the Institute of Adult & Community Education, Inc. in Prince Edward Island. He is preparing to write the GED exam for personal satisfaction and to get a better job. He has come a long way in a short amount of time. Hallie's example of determination to succeed after many years out of school helped convince his daughter to enroll as well!

Hi, my name is Hallie MacKinnon. In my experience with every day life, education has become a necessity of great importance. Taking the adult education program has been an ambition and goal seemingly impossible in my earlier years. My personal faith and confidence level was at a low point where I had to find myself a positive atmosphere to succeed.
I would like to sincerely thank my gifted instructors who brought out dedication and skill I didn't know I possessed. This particular program should be highly recommended to young and old.
