Education Encore returns to Gulf/Franklin Center

Published: Friday, August 29, 2014 at 05:35 PM.

That is what Gulf Coast State College at its Gulf/Franklin Center will be offering next month as Education Encore returns for another year.

Education Encore offers non-credit enrichment classes for adults on a variety of topics.

“We have a saying, you are never too old to learn,” said Jim Barr, coordinator of Education Encore. “There are no tests, no grades, no stress, just fun.”

Registration for Education Encore will be held at 1 p.m. ET Wednesday, Sept. 17. Registration is first-come, first-served.

Classes will be held on six consecutive Wednesdays, beginning Sept. 24 through Oct. 29.

Classes are offered in three morning time periods, from 8:30 a.m. to noon, making it possible for a student to take three classes during this year’s Encore. The fee is based on each student having access to all three classes each Wednesday.

The goal of Education Encore, Barr said, is to provide a learning environment that is fun, lively and offers diversity, insight and wisdom in which adults explore new ideas.
