Irene Lowe and Anthony Antonio are two of more than 400 armed forces veterans attending Chandler-Gilbert Community College this fall.
CGCC has responded to the increasing number of veterans returning to school by hiring LaMar Chapman, a Veterans Services coordinator, who will assist student veterans as they transition to college.
"CGCC's goal is to provide a variety of student enrollment services and academic programs that allow veterans and their dependents to obtain a post-secondary degree and promote opportunities for individual growth," Chapman said.
Lowe, 33, earned her bachelor's in business management while serving in the Navy. She now works at Intel as a manufacturing technician and decided to head back to college this fall for her mechanical engineering degree.
"For me, going back to school was a no-brainer - the GI Bill covers my tuition, books, and provides a monthly stipend," Lowe said. "I believe in lifetime learning, and an additional degree will also increase my future opportunities at Intel."
