Veteran Student Gives Back To Other Soldiers in the VA Work Study Program

Jun 09, 2014

Business administration management student Melvin March, a retired veteran of the U.S. Army who is a student at the Richmond Campus, is working in the VA work-study program at the Kentucky Career Center.  In his work, he assists many retired veterans, like himself, with their job search.  “When they get out now, it’s hard for them to find a job,” he explained.

He works one-on-one with the veterans to help them update their résumés, and he sets up job interviews for them.  He also assisted veteran job seekers during the career fair that was recently held at the Richmond Campus.

Melvin retired from the military after 33 years of service to his country.  “I thought about what I wanted to do after that, and I decided that I should go to school, because I’d always wanted to get in business,” Melvin recalled.  In addition to the funding he’s receiving as a VA work-study student, he’s using his Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits and the Armed Service Recognition Grant, available exclusively at American National University, to help him cover the cost of his education.

Melvin said that his work with the veterans at the Kentucky Career Center is very rewarding.  “I love it,” he said.  “I’m giving back to the soldiers and giving back to the community.”
