What lesson from Temple will you most take with you?
Hard work and perseverance provide the motivation to achieve your most challenging goals. While Vice President  of Temple Veterans Associations, I was a part of a task force whose goal was to win the Student Veterans of America/Home Depot Vet Center Initiative Grant—and we won! In November 2016, the Military and Veteran Services Center in Conwell Hall officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony by Gen. Colin L. Powell, Rear Adm. Tom Lynch and Temple President Richard M. Englert.
