CCC’s Military and Veterans Efforts Earn Gold

February 22, 2019

Gold DesignationCentral Community College has been named as a 2019-20 Military Friendly School and received a gold designation, which puts CCC atop the list of Nebraska small community colleges.

Viqtory, an organization dedicated to creating vital, civilian-produced resources for the approximately 250,000 people leaving the military each year, produces The Military Friendly list.

“Central Community College is thrilled to receive the Military Friendly Schools Gold designation,” said Travis Karr, veterans and military services director. “We take pride knowing we have honored CCC’s commitment to meet the needs of our students who are active-duty military, veterans, reservists or military-affiliated family members.”

CCC’s veteran and military resource centers (VMRC) – located at the Columbus, Grand Island and Hastings campuses and the Kearney Center – provide support to active duty, reservist and National Guard members; veterans; and their family members. In addition to military education benefits, the VMRC assists with transferring military credit, scholarships, career planning, registration and direct access to state and national veterans and military benefits, resources and programs. 

“We recognize the invaluable service veterans and service members provide for our nation,” said Karr. “We also are aware of the sacrifices military spouses and families must make. That’s why we are committed to empowering these students to achieve their academic, career and personal goals through a wide range of services.”

Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey completed by the school. This year, 766 schools earned a designation.

The 2019-20 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine. The list can also be found at
