Sussex Tech Adult Division students were guests at the annual “Meet and Greet the Many Faces of Adult Education” Legislative Luncheon on March 27 in Dover. The gathering is held to provide a casual atmosphere where students and legislators can converse about the immediate and long-term value of adult education in Delaware.
The event was hosted by Senator Cathy Cloutier and attended by many State legislators, including Representative Tim Dukes, Senator Robert Venables, Representative Ruth Briggs King, and Senator Gerald Hocker.
Following lunch, legislators heard from students about how the adult education programs in Delaware are positively affecting their lives and the lives of those around them. Speaking for adult students at Sussex Tech were Chanteea Harmon, Shemieka Jones, and Maria Sandoval. James H. Groves Adult High School Principal Terri Corder accompanied the students to the luncheon.

The Sussex Tech Adult Division receives United State Department of Education funding for a 21st Century Community Learning Center After School Program. The program serves Hispanic middle school students in the Woodbridge School District. The program offers assistance with homework, remediation and enrichment in Reading as well as technology. In addition, computer classes are offered to parents and Family Fun Nights are held. Field trips help increase background knowledge and promote connection with families and schools.
The 21st Century Community Learning Center After School Program is a collaboration between the Woodbridge School District, the Sussex Tech Adult Division, the Delaware State Housing Authority at Laverty Lane and the Arsht Cannon Foundation. The goal of the collaboration is to increase academic achievement, increase school connectedness of the participants’ families and increase the students’ capacity to become productive adults.
