Western Technical College is inviting General Education Diploma (GED) and High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED) alumni and staff to an all-class reunion. This debut event will be held Saturday, Sept. 17, from 2:00-4:00 p.m., in the Lunda Center on the La Crosse campus.

“The request for a reunion actually came from a former GED student,” said Sally Emerson, alumni coordinator at Western. “She noticed that we were having division reunions over the past several years and wondered if we were having one for GED and HSED alumni. We thought it was a great idea, and what better time to have it than during our 100-year anniversary!”

More than 400 students complete their GED or HSED at Western every year, and many of them continue at the college to become program students.
