A pep rally was held Tuesday at Sinton High School as the school celebrated their latest collaboration with Del Mar College.

Del Mar College opened their new Adult Education and Literacy Center on the site of the old Merle Smith Middle School Tuesday. The center will provide programs like GED and English as a Second Language course.

The Center will be free to San Patricio County residents in the hope that the classes will inspire more to seek a degree or certification that will help land them a better job.

Registration for the programs are currently underway and orientation for students will be held March 19.
