Attending college is an important decision for every high school student. But school is expensive, scholarships are competitive and school loans seem scary.
This session will be presented by a currently serving Army Soldier who has used education benefits and will explain some basic education benefits everyone receives when they serve in the military.
This session will provide students with basic information about how to pay for college in a way they might not have considered--through military service.
Fewer people today know someone who has served. I believe in arming students with information and give them options they might not have considered before.
This session will also provide some real scenarios and apply the benefits so students can "see" how they pay for school. This session will also provide website links where anyone can go and find out more information.

We are requesting permission to record, edit and make available each virtual interaction because teachers like to review the session with students for better understanding of material, assign it to students for homework in a blended learning model or just share it with other classrooms that cannot attend a live session. As a professional your volunteering hours go further when a recording is made available for reuse in education.
