Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) has been listed among G.I. Jobs magazine’s Military-Friendly Schools for 2013. The list recognizes the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, community colleges and trade schools nationwide that deliver the best experience for military students. G.I. Jobs provides service members and veterans with information about education, transition assistance and job opportunities.
“With this recognition, TNCC honors our rich tradition in serving the military,” said TNCC President John Dever. “It is a tradition that began with our namesake, Thomas Nelson, Jr., who was a merchant, a signer of the declaration, a colonial governor, and a militiaman who also provided his time and his wealth to finance George Washington’s army in the Revolutionary War, providing food, blankets, and clothing for the military.”
G.I. Jobs polled more than 7,000 schools nationwide to compile its list. An Academic Advisory Board consisting of college/university educators nationwide and representatives from Veterans Affairs, the American Council on Education Assistance, the College Level Examination Program and Student Veterans of America developed the methodology, criteria and weighting for the list.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by G.I. Jobs Magazine as a Military- Friendly School for the fourth consecutive year. At Thomas Nelson Community College, we strive to provide exemplary education, training and services to military members, veterans, retirees, civilian service personnel, spouses and other dependents,” said Wayne Christian, TNCC’s Director of Contract Credit and Military Affairs.
