Veteran & Military Center Update
There have been a lot of changes in the Veteran & Military Center (VMC) since the end of the Spring semester. This email will cover two major changes: new personnel and renovations for our new space.
Amanda Watkins has been promoted to Associate Director of the Veteran & Military Center. In her new role Amanda will continue to supervise benefits administration but from a distance. As the Associate Director, she has been charged with insuring that all veterans have access to the academic support and advocacy they need and want here at WSU.
Taking over for Amanda as the Assistant Director is Ty Lea Brewsaugh. Ty's familiarity with Veterans Benefits from her previous experience in the Registrar's office has made the transition a smooth and comfortable one for both our office and our constituents. In her new role, she will act as the primary certifying official and be responsible for the benefits administration on a day to day basis.
Moving to our New Space
This time our transition space is in 127 Allyn Hall - formerly Service Learning (they have moved around the corner into 106 Allyn Hall).
The site of the new Veteran & Military Center will be undergoing a major renovation over the next two months. Our 'new' space will be located in our former (and everyone else who has worked here over the past 20 years)swing space in 131 Allyn Hall, LEAP's prior quarters, and the adjacent classroom, 135 Allyn. We are grateful to the folks at Messer Construction; Mark Horsely, Wende Morgon-Elliot, Dan Papay, and Javan Conley in Engineering & Construction; and Lanetta Knotts (our interior designer) for the hard and fast work that has taken place up to now. I'm sure there will be many more people to thank as we move forward.
These expansions in staff and physical space represent a significant investment to insure that our veteran and military-connected students have the support they need to succeed at WSU. To all who have supported our first year as an expanded entity we are extremely grateful.
