TCC Moore Veterans Leadership Academy

The TCC Moore Veterans Leadership Academy is a two semester program beginning in the fall semester that will provide our outstanding student veterans an opportunity to participate in leadership activities related to different areas of career study. This program is a two semester commitment (fall and spring semester), and will consist of student participation in at least one leadership day per month. This leadership day might include participating in a community event, meeting with our community leaders, or visiting a prominent business or other service provider in our community. Mentorship will also be a valuable component of the academy. The academy is generously funded by Richard W. and Karen B. Moore.​

"I just got back from Afghanistan this past October, and a couple months later, I’m sitting in a classroom... They have a good program here and a lot of experience from a lot of instructors. I think it’s very helpful."
