Officials with Hopkinsville Community College have always touted the fact the local college is military friendly and encourages soldiers to further their education.
To drive that message home even further, HCC President Jim Selbe was invited for a dialogue on veterans in Washington.
The event is being hosted by the American Association of Community Colleges and the discussion session is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, October 30th at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington D.C.
Selbe was quoted as saying that it was an honor to be invited to the national discussion about serving military students.
According to AACC President, Walter Bumphus, the organization will be bringing together 20 to 25 community college leaders who play a vital role in advocating for and providing educational opportunities to active-service military students as well as veterans.
Other notable speakers scheduled to participate in the discussion include Curtis Coy, the Deputy Undersecretary for Economic Opportunity at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Andrea Baridon, Associate Director of the Service Members Opportunity Colleges.
