VRAP Student Appears on Local TV Show

Dec 03, 2012

Veteran Larry McPhail, who is a student in the systems and user support program at the Louisville Campus, and Campus Director Vincent Tinebra recently appeared on a special Veterans Day edition of the weekly TV show WAVE Country with Dawne Gee to discuss the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP).

VRAP, which is jointly administered by the Department of Labor and the Department of Veterans Affairs, is available to unemployed veterans between the ages of 35-60 for career training in high-demand occupations. 99,000 applicants will be assisted through VRAP and over 60,000 veterans have already been approved for the funding.

During the show, Larry explained that VRAP is funding his tuition. “This is a blessing and I took advantage of it,” said Larry of the VRAP benefit. “I’m 51 now and I needed to find work that was less physical.”

Larry knew that American National University offered the personal attention that he needed to succeed in his computer technology program because his sister-in-law, Virgie Douglas, is director of admissions for the campus. Larry said that he feels at home at National. He enjoys his instructors and he’s getting back into the swing of being in school. After completing the program, he hopes to gain some experience in the field and then open his own business.
