GED Graduate at Idaho CAPP Breaks a Record

GED Graduate at Idaho CAPP Breaks a Record

In 2015, acting on a desire to offer even more opportunities for the men incarcerated at their facility, the staff at MTC’s Idaho Correctional Alternative Placement Program, or CAPP, launched GED classes. Since then, 137 men have graduated.

It is well known that most people who study for and take the GED test struggle with the math portion.

Recently, Tyler Enget passed the GED test with very high marks; in fact, he scored a 194 on the math test, making it the highest score ever achieved at the facility. Enget says he’s always been good at math, but with the help of his GED instructor, Troy Nickel, and some good hard work, he’s done remarkably well.

Nickel, as with all of the staff at Idaho CAPP, continually strives to go above and beyond the basic requirements of their job to make a difference in someone’s life.

With the confidence gained from doing so well with his GED test, Enget has set his sights on college after he’s released and has already applied for financial aid. His goal is to become a journalist and maybe one day an author.
