Veterans of Virginia Annual Statewide Conference

The Student Veterans of Virginia 3rd Annual Statewide Conference was held in Roanoke on November 5 & 6.  The event brought together various groups for the common goal of helping military connected students achieve success in their academic careers. 

Conference attendees Ms. Walkerincluded Virginia community colleges, 4 year private and state colleges & universities, Virginia Department of Veterans Affairs officials, as well as currently enrolled veteran and active duty military members & dependents.

One of our very own students, Chatorra Walker, was asked to join a panel about transitioning students on a community college campus.  She did an outstanding job on the panel and was later interviewed by a local Roanoke TV station.  Chatorra’s interview can be found at the following link: http://wsls.com/2015/11/06/after-years-of-service-going-back-to-school-can-be-daunting-for-some/ 

Mrs. Shayna Maxey attended and we thank her for her support of our Veteran students.
