Clovis Community College announced on December 8, 2016 that it has been named a Gold-level
Military Friendly® School Award recipient in the category of Community Colleges for
2017. Victory Media, originator of the family of Military Friendly® employment, entrepreneurship
and education resources for veterans and their families, published its special awards
for 2017 Military Friendly® Schools and Employers at https://militaryfriendly.com. For more than a decade, Military Friendly® ratings have set the standard for companies
and colleges demonstrating positive employment and education outcomes for veterans
and their families.
New this year, Military Friendly® Awards showcase the most powerful and effective programs of more than 200 companies and 1,200 post-secondary schools that were designated as “Military Friendly®” in November. Of those designated, 154 employers and 541 schools have been recognized for excellence in different categories, highlighting not only “Are you Military Friendly®?” but “How Military Friendly® are you?”
“All of our Military Friendly® award recipients set the standard for excellence,” said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer of Victory Media and head of Military Friendly® development. “They offer exceptional examples of what it means not just to build a program that meets federal requirements, but one that serves the military and veteran community from classrooms to careers.”
