CFCC Student Veterans Receive $4000 from MOAA
The Southeastern Chapter (SENCLAD) of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA)— the nation’s largest association of military officers—recently awarded a total of $4000 to five Cape Fear Community College student veterans.
SENCLAD is composed of 300 currently serving or retired officers in New Hanover, Brunswick, Pender, and Onslow counties. These members represent the five uniformed services and aim to assist other members of the seven uniformed services, their families, and survivors.
“MOAA thrives on supporting military officers at every stage of their careers,” said Kenneth Klassen, SENCLAD chapter president. “Our members strive to “Never Stop Serving” because of what veterans before us have done to improve the lives of those who serve and their families. It was an honor to meet these students, to hear about their military service, plans for careers, and to observe how supportive the staff and administration at Cape Fear Community College is to veteran students.”
“It’s a great honor to have such an impressive organization support our veteran students,” said CFCC President Jim Morton. “To have this deep level of support from dedicated individuals who have navigated the transition into civilian life and higher education is a great gift to our students; the difference it makes is tremendous.”
Student veterans make up a large portion of CFCC’s student body. In fact, during the fall semester of 2019, more than 700 student veterans and their dependents were enrolled at the College. To learn more about veterans at CFCC, visit cfcc.edu/veterans.
