McHenry resident Adam Lowrey wanted to further his career, but a lack of a high school diploma made pursuing his goals impossible. After only completing three years of high school, he turned to McHenry Public Library District to earn his diploma.
He wants to achieve a higher education and now will have that opportunity with help from his public library and our Career Online High School program. The curriculum is online and allows residents 21 and older to earn a high school diploma or get a career certificate in a variety of fields, such as office management or child care.
“I believe having this diploma and completing a program in HVAC will help me better provide for my family,” he said.
“We’re excited that Adam took advantage of this opportunity to finish his diploma and advance his career. Lifelong learning and career preparation is a big part of our mission, so we’re happy to offer this program to eligible, deserving district residents.”
