Check out this Maricopa Matters profile about Jordan Sherwood, who serves as a Rio Salado Student Services Specialist at the East Valley Veterans Center.

As a veteran and Maricopa Community Colleges student, Sherwood is using his experience to help other veterans and their families transition from military to civilian life by taking advantage of the educational benefits they deserve.

We're proud to have you on our team.
"The EVVEC is literally the one place you can walk into and find out exactly what you need to know to not only make a successful transition but also to live a comfortable life. Students don’t always know what they need until after they realize they need it. We know what questions to ask, and what conversations to have to prompt these kinds of consultations so that’s the biggest thing. We want students to recognize that, by coming into the EVVEC, we’re going to help them be successful – academically, professionally, and personally." -- Jordan Sherwood
You can meet Sherwood and learn more about the programs and services offered at the EVVEC during a special celebration with the City of Tempe on Saturday, Feb. 28. Visit this blog entry for more details.
