Gretchen Wilson Encourages Education

Gretchen Wilson wants high school dropouts to give school another try.

Gretchen Wilson has partnered with the Advertising Counsel and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation as a spokesperson for earning GED diplomas.

“People need the right tools to succeed and, at the very minimum, a major tool on the road to success is a high school diploma or GED,” said Wilson. “This campaign will go a long way toward educating people on how to take that first step to make a difference in their lives and the lives of their families, and I’m honored to be a part of it.”

Gretchen Wilson left school after the eighth grade at age 15 and received her GED almost 20 years later.Country Music Photo Gallery
