Business and Technology Skills Aid Veteran in His Entrepreneurial Ventures



Dec 01, 2014

U.S. Army veteran Kenneth Davis first learned about National College when he met admissions representative Frank Lawing at a veterans workshop that was held by Congressman Jim Cooper. After visiting the Nashville Campus, he decided the time was right to take advantage of his Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits, and he enrolled in the business administration-management program.

Kenneth’s Post-9/11 GI Bill was supplemented by the National College Armed Services Grant, a grant available exclusively at National College, which helps alleviate out-of-pocket expenses incurred by veterans and their dependents who are receiving military educational benefits.  

“I knew that it was something that could fit in with what I’m already doing,” Kenneth said of his decision to enroll at National. “Everybody’s been very helpful.”

Kenneth retired from the military in 2006 after 20 years of service and owns two businesses:  a company that operates homes for the mentally disabled and a special event venue. He feels that the business and technology skills that he’s gaining in his program are applicable to the challenges that he faces with his businesses each day.  

In the future, Kenneth plans to continue to grow his businesses, and he’s always on the lookout for other entrepreneurial opportunities. “I’m always looking for different avenues of income, but right now I’m really excited and focused on school and looking forward to actually having a [diploma] that I can put on the wall,” Kenneth said with a smile.

U.S. Army veteran Kenneth Davis is gaining knowledge in his business administration-management program, which will help him grow his two businesses.
