Annamarie Rohrer, food services associate in the South Dining Hall, decided to earn her GED (General Education Development) after her father, Mike Cora, also a South Dining Hall Food Services employee, enrolled in the GED program offered by the Office of Human Resources Learning at Work Skills Academy. The GED program is offered through the South Bend Community School Corp.
“I thought if he had the ambition to go back to school, I could do it, too,” Rohrer says.
After completing her GED program in the fall of this year, Rohrer enrolled in the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program at Brown Mackie College.
Her father, Mike, who’s working to finish his own GED, was present to cheer Annamarie as she received her diploma. When Mike completes his own GED, Annamarie says, she will be there with her own children to support him.
