The Grand Opening for the VA Educational Success Center at Northeast Alabama Community College is scheduled for July 6, 2016, at 12:30 p.m. in Room 104 in the Wallace Administration Building. Refreshments will be served and it is open to the public.
The Success Center will offer the following:
A welcoming environment to aid students and dependents in their transition to college,
A computer lab and study lab with internet access,
Assistance for military/veteran students, their spouses and dependents in applying for and/or updating their educational benefits, and
A location for information about the new Student Veterans of America chapter (campus club for veterans, their dependents and civilian students).
The Success Center is conveniently located across the hall from the Financial Aid Office to enable further assistance with financial needs such as FAFSA completion, possible scholarships, etc.
Jeremy Wilson, the voluntary Chaplin for the Student Veterans of America chapter, said, “I proudly served this country for five years in the United States Army. Immediately upon my arrival as a student at Northeast Alabama Community College, the faculty and staff, led by Holly Williams, served me with the same amount of care and dedication as I had just completed. Many great things can be said about the Veterans Affairs Office at NACC. Their care in assisting our service men and women as they continue on the right course of success is obvious as we see veteran after veteran, of which I'm one, pass through with a quality education. NACC is dedicated to serving those who have served them, they definitely set veterans up for success by equipping them with all the right academic tools to transition into the civilian workforce with confidence. What NACC has in store for veterans in the coming school year will only aid in that continued track record of excellence.”
Sherry Whitten, Director of College and Career Planning Center, added, “The College and Career Planning Center is here to serve students, and we look forward to continuing our services to veterans and students still serving in the armed forces. We can provide individualized career planning, transfer advising, and assistance with job placement. We are honored to serve those who have served our country.”
