Receiving a high school diploma is an achievement most people accomplish but sometimes reaching the goal can be difficult. In June 2012, City Manager Ron Olson discovered more than 100 City employees did not have at least a high school diploma or equivalency certificate and made a policy change to make that milestone more achievable. The City of Corpus Christi now has 59 employees who have received their GED or General Education Development test credential thanks to the City Manager’s requirement.
