Plus 50 program kicks off at GHC


Grays Harbor College will launch its new Plus 50 Encore Completion program with a free computer workshop on Saturday, Sept. 13, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Whiteside Education Center in Aberdeen.

Plus 50 is a new program designed for adults age of 50 and older who, for various reasons, are seeking new career directions. Workshops, such as the Sept. 13 computer class, are offered at no charge for these returning students considering new careers in the fields of health care, education and social services.

Bethany Barnard is the college’s Plus 50 career coach, based at the Whiteside facility where the workshop will take place. This computer workshop will be the first in a series of many scheduled to help Plus 50-eligible students prepare to return to college.

“GHC has several certificate and degree programs that will be included in our Plus 50 programming as career pathways for the health care, education and social service fields,” Barnard said. “These include two-year degrees inearly childhood education, medical records, CNA, nursing, criminal justice, human services and, in partnership with City University, we offer an onsite pathway to a bachelor’s in education.”

For further information about the Sept. 13 workshop and others that are being planned, contact Barnard at bethany.barnard@ghc.edu or (360) 533-9733.
