Michael Weston is a Marine with a mission. That mission is to make the successful pursuit of higher education available to military veterans attending LCCC. Weston is the newly appointed Manager of Veterans Military Member Center and Veterans Services on campus. He intends to assist veterans with as much information as may be within his reach to facilitate as many “life-solutions” as may be requested. Weston is an honorably discharged Marine and combat veteran having served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He brings firsthand experience with the issues facing our military student body into the new position.
Weston’s intention is to assist student veterans as much as he can.
Student veterans may be struggling with the ins and outs of the GI Bill, educational benefits, medical issues, financial aid, or assistance in just getting along with their lives. Assistance with PTSD and suicide prevention are major concerns for many veterans. Weston hopes to use his position to help reduce such tragedies. These issues can include assistance with rent, groceries, or getting scheduled for the proper testing to be fitted with appropriate hearing aids.
Student veterans dealing with education challenges, requesting transcripts from military service, medical issues, disability rating reclassification or any other issue facing veterans in the initiation, continuation, or completion of educational pursuits. Weston and his staff are prepared and capable of providing workable solutions and additional contacts.
If you are a military veteran attending LCCC in pursuit of your dreams, stop in and meet with Weston and his staff at the Veterans Services Center.
