Gretchen Wilson went to Capitol Hill yesterday to hand deliver over 10,000 letters from volunteers across the country in support of increasing funding for adult education. After dropping out of school at a young age, Gretchen received her G.E.D. almost one year ago. While in Washington DC, Gretchen also testified in a hearing before the Subcommittee on Higher Education about her experiences while earning her diploma.
