Submitted on January 19, 2010 at 10:48 AM

Education can help you get a better job and grow a career. Volunteer State Community College is holding an evening especially designed for Hispanic families. The Hispanic Family Education Night will help answer questions about everything from college degree programs to English classes. It will be held on Tuesday, February 9 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on the Vol State campus in Gallatin.

"We have all sorts of people attend: high school students who are getting ready for college, and adults who want to go back to school or improve their English skills," said Eric Melcher, Communications Coordinator at Vol State. "We'll have several college offices on hand, including Admissions and Advising. We'll also have bilingual staff available for advising and translating in Spanish."

ESOL classes are a popular subject at Hispanic Family Night. ESOL stands for English for Speakers of Other Languages. The classes provide a stepping stone for Spanish speaking people to build their skills in conversation, writing and reading.

Refreshments will be served and there will be movies and fun to keep the kids entertained, so parents can have time to ask questions. Everyone is invited to attend. Hispanic Family Night will be held in the Thigpen Library on the Vol State campus at 1480 Nashville Pike in Gallatin. For more information call 615-230-3570 or in Spanish 615-230-4846.
