Moraine Park Technical College recently signed the ‘Got Your 6’ pledge in support of providing education services to student veterans. Got Your 6 is a movement led by a consortium of major film and television studios, broadcast and cable networks, talent agencies and guilds that are united in changing the conversation in America about veterans and military families.
Moraine Park has joined dozens of colleges and universities nationwide committed to supporting current and future students who are also military veterans.
The following organizations are leading the efforts: Pat Tillman Foundation, Student Veterans of America and Operation College Promise. These organizations are collaborating to collect pledges from 500 colleges and universities by June 2014.
Moraine Park is also proud to have been approved as an official chapter by the national Student Veterans of America organization and was recognized as a Military Friendly school for the fourth consecutive year.
“With more than 150 student veterans currently attending Moraine Park we are always looking for ways to further support our students,” Dwane Klostermann, Moraine Park instructor and club advisor, said. “All these efforts will provide our veteran students with the resources they need to be successful.”
