Merrill Adult Diploma Academy announces 2023 Grads
Merrill Area Public Schools and Northcentral Technical College held a ceremony for the 2023 graduates of the Merrill Adult Diploma Academy (MADA) at the AGRA Pavilion on July 26, 2023. The graduating class consists of 18 students who have completed their goals and are ready to take the next step in their life journeys. Several of these students already have full-time jobs; some are planning on furthering their education.
Students were congratulated by guest speaker Merrill Firefighter Corey Nowak, along with Lead Teacher Erin Bailey, Principal Megan Kautzer, School Board President Kevin Blake, MADA board member Susan Ryman, and many family supporters.
The MADA Charter School is a partnership between the Merrill School District and Northcentral Technical College that has served the community since 2007. The primary purposes of MADA are to assist traditional students with high school completion, and to help adult students earn a General Education Diploma (GED). In addition, MADA offers employability skills and computer training, and provides students assistance in preparing to enter NTC or other college programs. Additional graduation photos can be found on Facebook @MadaWeAreMAPSchools.
MADA is fortunate to be part of a cooperative arrangement between the City of Merrill and the Merrill School District. The school serves the Merrill community and Lincoln County, and relocated in 2019 to the lower level of the Merrill City Hall building at 1004 E. First St.
