Meet Christopher

Workforce Challenge

Christopher Bonner came to Paxen Learning Corporation after seeing participants leaving our classroom setting everyday at the MS Army National Guard Amory. One day he came into our office and inquired about our services. Although he wanted to attend college, he had not graduated from high school and first needed to obtain his GED.

Workforce Solution

We gladly accepted Christopher into our GED Xcelerator program. He embraced the learning environment that Paxen Learning Corp afforded him and he thrived in our academic setting. Christopher became a champion in the math section of the GED exam and he often assisted the instructor with peer-to-peer instruction. Christopher sat for the GED exam at the Hinds Community College campus in Raymond, MS in October 2010. He passed all five sections of the GED exam on his first seating.

Outcomes & Benefits

Christopher generously continues to assist other GED students by volunteering as a mathematics tutor, enabling participants to feel more comfortable with the mathematical section of the GED exam. In January 2011, Christopher enrolled at Hinds Community College as a full time student, fulfilling his dream of attending college. Christopher is realigning his life through education, and plans to help others re-build their lives.
