If you saw news stories recently about Texas A&M offering its first Warrior-Scholar Project program, you should know that you helped make it happen!
"What y’all helped us do is change the lives of 19 veterans,” said the VRSC's Col. Jerry L. Smith '82.
The weeklong “boot camp,” a kind of intense academic reorientation with daily sessions from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., helped these veterans take strengths from their military careers and apply them to higher education. They came out with high goals and high confidence in their ability to transition to top universities - three are already coming to Texas A&M and three more are seeking admission. The VRSC is hoping to offer a 2-week version next year.
