Veterans’ Liaison, Rick Wojick, Gives Presentation at Veterans Summit Meeting

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]AUM Veterans’ Liaison, Rick Wojick (USAF Colonel, Retired), gave a short presentation on VA educational benefits and higher education opportunities at Antioch University Midwest to about 100 local vets and their families during the Greene County (OH) Veterans Summit Meeting on November 14, 2016. Wojick talked to the group about the value of the Post-9/11 GI Bill that pays for full college tuition, books and supplies up to $1000 per year, and a monthly housing allowance of over $1,200 in the Yellow Springs area of Ohio. In addition to the Yellow Ribbon Program, of which AUM is a participating institution, the total benefits for students are over $150,000. However, he cautioned the attendees that only one in four veterans are taking advantage of the current GI Bill despite the fact that educational benefits are the primary reason most people joined the military. In attendance were Ohio State Representative Rick Perales, Greene County Commissioner Tom Koogler, and Xenia Mayor Marsha Bayless.
