Brant Davis; GED Graduate

Brant Davis participated in UMMA Center’s GED program. Brant enrolled in GED classes that began on January 19, 2017. While he was enrolled, Brant was a model student and his attendance was stellar. From the beginning, Brant was laser focused on not only learning, but excelling in all his courses. Brant spent every free hour studying the required course materials in preparation for the final exams. His hard work paid off! Brant completed all five (5), of the GED course requirements, six (6) weeks after enrollment. Brant’s test scores were much higher than those required for passing. In two of his classes he scored at college ready and in one class, his scores were eligible for college credit.
