Center for Lifelong Learning Recognized by United Way

Dateline: May 6, 2019

Athens State University’s Center for Lifelong Learning was recently recognized by the United Way of Athens-Limestone County during their annual luncheon. The agency honored local organizations that go above and beyond to help a variety of groups and individuals across the community.

The Center for Lifelong Learning partnered with the United Way to launch a pilot program for students wanting to improve their ACT scores. The ACT Tutoring and Prep classes have resulted in an average increase of two points on students’ ACT scores. Over 100 local students have benefited from the program, with five graduating seniors scoring over 30 on their tests and receiving university scholarships.

The Center for Lifelong Learning is the continuing education extension of Athens State University. It provides non-credit educational opportunities to promote lifelong learning in areas of personal enrichment, professional development, concerts, lectures, and classes for children.
