IHCC named 'Military Friendly School' for 2nd year

OTTUMWA — Indian Hills Community College has been named a “Military Friendly School” for the second consecutive year. The designation comes from Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life.

“It is an honor to serve our veterans,” said Teresa McNitt, IHCC’s Veterans Affairs Coordinator and also a military veteran. “The transition process can be rather challenging for returning veterans and we provide assistance to help them with their college, GI Bill, Federal Tuition Assistance and state applications, as well as financial aid and academic guidance to ensure their success in the classroom and beyond.”

“Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Indian Hills’ commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, vice president at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran.

Collins said the Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are “doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.”

McNitt points out that Indian Hills honors each veteran with an honor stole at the college’s graduation ceremonies to thank them for their service to our country. She added, “We take pride in the military friendly ideals by offering one-on-one service to military service members and their dependents.”

Indian Hills annually enrolls around 150 military veterans.

A story and detailed list of the Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools, distributed in print and digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in October.
