Ky. Community College in Position to Help Veterans Make Career Transition
Catherine Morris, Diverse Issues in Higher Education
Kristy Riddell, a veteran, is one semester shy of finishing her associate degree program in business with an accounting track. A single mother of three living in Paducah, Kentucky, Riddell has had her hands full with school and family obligations.
Community colleges like West Kentucky Community and Technical College (WKCTC) serve a substantial slice of the national student veteran population. That's why many are building comprehensive support networks to help students like Riddell cross the finish line to complete a degree or credential and prepare for the next chapter of their lives.
