Sarah Kay Kennedy knew she needed to complete the adult-education program to get a good job. At times, though, she felt like giving up.
Kennedy, a former spinner for Springs Global, cried many nights after leaving the Lancaster County Adult Education center on Barr Street, where she was working toward a GED (general equivalency diploma).
The day she was about to take her GED test in March, Kennedy, 49, was found crying in the bathroom. She tried to leave the building, but personnel encouraged her to stay and take the test.
