    Seventeen adults who received their high school diplomas from the Dodge City Education Center on Sunday are now aspiring to go to college and get better jobs.
    The DCEC program was created nine years ago in partnership with USD 443 and Southwest Plains Regional Service Center USD 626.
    One hundred and six adults have graduated from this program, said program coordinator Nacho Sumaya. He said Dodge City's growing population has resulted in more demand for adult secondary education.
    One hundred and forty adults attended class through the program last year, but this year the number increased to 147.
    Sumaya said he is not concerned about having the resources to satisfy the rising demand, since this is a computer-based instruction program where each student only needs a notebook.
