For the first time, the Graves County Adult Learning Center will offer citizenship classes at the Skilled Craft Training Center near Mayfield.

Classes will be held each Wednesday 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Room 114, beginning February 5. The Skilled Craft Center is an off campus location of West Kentucky Community amp; Technical College.

The free classes will be in taught in English and are for individuals who are eligible to obtain citizenship in the United States or individuals who would like to begin studying for citizenship, said Kehla R. Vance, adult education specialist.

According to the U.C. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a person must pass a naturalization test and provide information about their application and background in order to become a naturalized U.S. Citizen.

The classes at the Skilled Craft Center will prepare individuals for the speaking, reading, writing, and civics portions of the test. Students will not need to prove their eligibility in any way unless they would like assistance with the application process.

Students do not have to enroll, Vance said. They simply have to show up at class.
