Message from the Director

Welcome to Spring and summer at Martinez Adult Education

Suzanne Murphy, DirectorHappy New Year and welcome to 2019, hard to believe we are celebrating a new year already. It has been my pleasure for the last 18 months to serve as the director of Martinez Adult Education. As you may have gathered from the cover, the adult school has reached a rather lofty milestone. This year, 2019 marks the 100th year that Martinez Adult Education has served the community. It was back in 1919 that at the request of Shell, the adult school was established. You can read more about the history on page 27.

As we gear up for spring and summer, we continue to strive to meet the needs of all in the community. Whether your goal is to improve your English,
complete your High School Diploma, pass the HISET (High School Equivalency Test), or begin a new career we are here to help.
We are an access point for anyone looking for assistance in training for a new career or help with job search. Free services are offered to the community from personal resume review, mock job interviews, and creating an online presence with LinkedIn. If you are interested in any of these services visit our website for an updated calendar of events.

Please make sure to attend one of our Career Technical Education open houses to learn about the existing career training opportunities at our school. We are holding two open houses both will be on Wednesday, February 13, 2019, 9:30 am and 6:30 pm in the school auditorium. Information on financial
assistance will be provided at both sessions.

Happy New Year,



Suzanne Murphy, Director
