Veteran Services Gain RecognitionJuly 29, 2016 | :
For about a year and a half, Michael Rutledge has served as the Veterans Resource Representative at the University. His service has helped earn the school multiple honors, including the latest from the Michigan Veteran Education Initiative. Rutledge says the string of recognition has been helpful to veterans in the community at large.
“The veterans who aren’t using their education benefits that have them — who may have had some sort of apprehension or anxiety about going back to school — when they see on television or they read in the newspaper that the school’s so veteran-friendly, they’re much more willing to come approach me and take advantage of that,” said Rutledge, who also works in Veteran Student Services at the University.
