The Adult Learning Center would like to thank our many sponsors for their contributions


You have probably heard it said that knowledge is power. But a person may understand difficult problems, have flawless logic, or know how to operate machinery perfectly, and still lack character. Consider the effects of knowledge without character. What good are facts without the ability to apply them with wisdom, discernment, and decisiveness?
Good character is the inward values that determine outward actions. It is the inward motivation to do what is right in every situation.
The ALC would like to send a BIG thank you to
for their $5,000 donation to our program!
Our family, friends, staff and students greatly appreciate you H-E-B!
