State Senator Frank LaRose (R–Copley) today joined Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor, Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor John Carey, and Ohio Department of Veterans Services Director Timothy Gorrell at an event highlighting the University of Akron’s leadership in providing comprehensive academic and support services to student-veterans and service members. The purpose of the visit was to see how the program’s success can be replicated at other campuses to advance Ohio's mission to provide support and services to veterans when they return from service.

“I know first-hand how it can be difficult to translate military education and work experience into the civilian workforce,” said LaRose. “The work being done here at the University of Akron is important to honoring the service of our young men and women in uniform and helping them to make their military experience marketable to Ohio’s growing economy.”
