Blackhawk Celebrates GED, HSED Graduates

May 15, 2024


In a ceremony at Blackhawk Technical College’s Central Campus, 33 students graduated Tuesday evening with their Certificate of General Education Development (GED) or their High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED).

Among the graduates, two individuals shared their personal journeys – both marked with significant challenges and triumphs.

“I always knew that I’d be back one day to give it my best go and try to get my GED,” said Demeon Davis, who said he plans to go on to become a police officer because he wants to help others.

Kohna Kalscheur, reflecting on her own experience, emphasized the importance of self-determination.

“Choose yourself first over anybody. Only you will be there for yourself at the end of a long night and first thing in the morning…it’s never too late to go back and finish what you started,” she said.

Blackhawk provides flexible and supportive options to complete the GED/HSED requirements. With flexible lab times and instructor-led classes at three locations, students have many options to prepare for the GED/HSED tests. Learn more at
