SNELLVILLE – Adult education classes took place Aug. 26 in Snellville City Hall’s new education and business space, kicking off a new era of citizen engagement in the city.
Gwinnett Technical College is offering General Education Diploma classes in the newly remodeled space on the second floor of City Hall.
“As a Gwinnettian myself I feel this program is a powerful investment in the Snellville community,” said Gwinnett Tech Adult Literacy Instructor Kevin Black. “Our goal is to help those students who would benefit from a high school equivalency gain the tools they need to succeed in a college or in a career. I tell students that earning a GED is a worthy goal but that it should never be the end goal.”
Half of the second floor of Snellville City Hall was renovated this year to bolster local education and business opportunities. The Greater Eastside Chamber of Commerce has already secured office space and others are soon to sign on, according to Economic Development Manager Eric Van Otteren.

Gwinnett Tech is continuing to offer classes during its next session which begins Oct. 14.
Gwinnett Tech is also offering GED classes at South Gwinnett High School.
