Clycia Hammonds of Magazine has been named the full-time instructor of the Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus Adult and Continuing Education.
She now teaches at the Paris-Logan County Adult Education Center on Mondays and Wednesdays, and will expand the hours in the fall at the Charleston-Franklin County Adult Education Center to include Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Fall classes begin Aug. 27 and students can enroll and begin classes at any point in the semester.
“I’m looking forward to reaching out to residents in the Paris and Charleston areas. From the GED to basic skills education, adult education services are free and can be the first step toward a new life for so many people,” Hammonds said.
With more than 20 years of teaching experience, Hammonds begins her eighth year with ATU-Ozark, previously teaching part-time. She holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville.
Arkansas Tech-Ozark has adult education centers in Booneville, Charleston, Clarksville, Ozark and Paris. Along with its GED program, the centers also teach English-as-a-second-language (ESL) and workplace classes, as well as basic skills reviews for those in need of upgrading skills to enter higher education, the military or workforce.
