G.I. Jobs® Announces 2021 Student Veteran Leadership Awards

PITTSBURGH – G.I. Jobs® is proud to announce the second annual 2021 Student Veteran Leadership Awards (SVLAs), a prestigious honor presented to student veterans who are making a positive difference at their school and in their community. 

The 25 SVLA honorees excelled in their academics and made meaningful contributions to their school, fellow students and the community. They worked to bridge the cultural gap between student veterans and civilian students, faculty and staff. They embody the spirit of leadership, teamwork and camaraderie they learned in the military. They’ve overcome challenges and take the lead in campus and community activities. They hail from large schools and small, private and public, two year and four year. They are a credit to the nation they served.

“These 25 veterans are shining examples that military skills translate well to an academic setting. I salute these student leaders for their selfless work in creating opportunity for their veteran brothers and sisters by advocating for the continued improvement of programs and services for military and veteran students, ” said Chris Hale, CEO of VIQTORY®, the veteran-owned business which owns and operates G.I. Jobs.
