Participating in ORO/HEP has been a blessing and a dream come true of helping me obtain a GED. I want to thank the program because this program has not only given me the opportunity to improve myself as a person, but also that many people have benefited from the program personally. I never thought I would ever have an opportunity like this, but thanks to ORO/HEP I pray many of us will have this opportunity.

Since the first day of being enrolled in the program I have felt motivated knowing better things in life are coming as well as opened doors and opportunities. Not only does ORO/HEP pay for your GED testing they also provide Laptop and hotspot, assistance with groceries, monthly voucher check, and eye appointment for those in need of glasses with all cost covered. I want to tremendously thank all members of ORO/HEP as well as for all the opportunities and assistance you guys have provided.

Hello, my name is Gloria Flores and I want to thank you for your program. ORO is a very good program because they give me the opportunity to continue with the studies that for whatever reason I did not finish. This program opens doors for students and most importantly gives us hope to improve our future with the courses that ORO offers by computer. ORO/HEP is very good because they teach us, they inspire us, guide us, and give us the ideas we need to learn for preparation of the GED Final.

I also want to thank ORO for the opportunity of meeting Paula and Luis While in ORO/HEP. They are very efficient people in their work. They encourage and guide us, they give us the materials we need to achieve our goals – they are patient, understanding, and that is appreciated.

This program is one that is not only interested in education, but in people. All that you do for us is a genuine interest in others, thank you very much for all the opportunities and the help you give us such as monetary help each month, the Walmart student code of conduct cards for spending in food as well as offering a ride and assistance to the eye doctor. I just want to thank all the members of ORO/HEP and I hope to correspond to all your hard work and the effort you do for us, thank you very much.

I am writing to you today to say Thank You ORO and the HEP Program!!!!  You guys rock! You have treated me all the way through each step of this process with respect and dignity.

Being a high school dropout, and a teen Mom had all but eliminated my hopes of getting my High School Diploma.

With the help of the ORO and the HEP I’m on my way to completing my GED and looking forward to my next step in my educational journey.

This journey with ORO and the HEP has reunited me with my grandmother and brought much joy back in my life and my family. I now see hope in the future to provide a better life for my children, something I thought was all but gone!

Walter Duncan – Altus, Oklahoma

My name is Walter Duncan and I’m 56 years old.  I never completed high school and at my age never thought I would.  I have had many jobs over the years, but was always held back due to the fact I didn’t have a High School Diploma.  I had heard about ORO from my wife’s co-worker.

I contacted the Altus ORO field office to inquire about the HEP program and was giving Mrs. Elliot’s (Project Director) contact information.  The service’s the program provided, gave me the ability to do the online courses, take the exams and still have pocket money.

I’m 2 exams away from completing my GED and moving on to Southwest Technology Center for my next educational adventure.  This was all made possible by ORO High School Equivalency Program.  Thank you!!!
