Apollo Career Center is now offering a free ABLE/GED class at LACCA, 13093 Infirmary Road, on the second floor.

This is the first time the class has been offered in Auglaize County, said Joyce Tracy, Apollo coordinator of ABLE/GED/ESOL/Reading Lab. Classes are now offered in a five county area, which includes Auglaize, Mercer, Van Wert, Paulding and Allen.

“We have just been trying to build up the area and trying to figure out the best places to have it, and LACCA has been very instrumental in letting us have it there, so it's the perfect place," Tracy said.

LACCA is the Lima Allen Council on Community Affairs.

The Wapakoneta location's classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. until noon. According to a news release, the class can aid students with reading, writing, math and computer skill review; job search and resume writing; and preparing for post-secondary education or college.
