Alice Barr-Nixon speaks to group at G.E.D. Program in Freeport, NY

This picture was taken in 1995 when I was an Office Manger for the New York State Assembly.  I spoke to a group of Women and Men at a G.E.D. Program in Freeport, New York.  It was a proud moment. I am the proud holder of a General Education Diploma.  It was important to let them know, that you can achieve your dreams.  They may be delayed, but that does not mean they are denied.  As a man once told me when I whispered at a job interview, "I have a G.E.D.".  "Don't ever whisper that you have a G.E.D.!  I know that you earned that G.E.D., but I don't know how they got that Diploma."
