Sutton, Mason, and other Digit All employees had spent all of December working every day, most days from 9 a.m. to after 8 p.m., making sure everyone who wanted to could have a chance to pass the General Education Development test to get their certificate of high school equivalency (GED). "Those who fail, we tried to register them for [a retest] the next day-people were crying for joy or crying for tears," Sutton says, noting that not everyone passes the test. "You really could say you made a difference. We had a guy who had been trying to pass since 2002. He could not pass the math. He finally passed it on New Year's Eve."
