Volunteer State Community College and Workforce Essentials of Robertson County are teaming up for a night designed to help the Hispanic community. Information about English classes, GED preparation, and college courses and degrees will be available at the event on March 3 in Springfield.

“This is our first Hispanic Family Night in Springfield. They’ve been quite popular in Gallatin. We’ll have advice and information for the entire family, from teenagers getting ready for college, to parents who are looking to improve English skills,” said Eric Melcher, Communications Coordinator for Vol State. “It will be held at the Tennessee Career Center in Springfield, which is a good community resource for everyone who wants basic education and career help.”

Translators will be available for Spanish speakers. Representatives from Robertson County Adult Education will answer questions about Basic English classes, and high school GED classes. Vol State staff will assist with information about college level ESOL English classes, as well as the 70 academic programs, and several degree options, offered by the college. Vol State has a main campus in Gallatin, but the college also offers several evening courses each semester at Springfield High School.
