A federal grant program held an open house for veterans looking to enroll in school and use their education benefits. Veterans Upward Bound helps veterans transition out of the military and into the classroom. Today’s open house was held for local veterans to gather information on what options and opportunities are available to them.
Veterans Upward Bound also helps teach veterans on new technology, resume building, financial literacy and more. Blake Jenkins served for seven years and shares why he takes advantage of the Veterans Upward Bound Program.
