Quotes from students 


              "The Poteau Adult Learning Center helped me in finding my career path; I am pursuing electrical technology and hope to someday work in that field.  I used my scholarship to Kiamichi to help defray my expenses, and I appreciate that scholarship very much." - Johnny Kornher

“My name is Connie Cabe. At 53 I realized that I might have to get back into the work force, but times have changed. I figured I would need a GED or no one would even consider hiring me. So I enrolled in the Poteau Adult Learning Center, I was thinking it would take only a few months. Boy was I wrong. I believe it took me about 9 months to finish. I am so glad I decided to get my GED. I may never have to work a job, but just doing it gave me confidence. I love learning. If I could do it all again, I would. All the people at the Poteau Adult Learning Center are just great, and I have left with some wonderful memories and great new friends, both young and older.” -Connie Cabe
