Leggett Announces Improved Outreach and Services for County Veterans at Local Colleges and Universities

The Montgomery County Veterans Education and Benefits Partnership recently launched by County Executive Ike Leggett will provide improvements to education, social services, career development, benefits support and counseling to U.S. armed forces’ veterans enrolled at Montgomery College, The Universities at Shady Grove and Montgomery County’s Johns Hopkins campus.

The partnership will bring access to those individuals who need benefits and services at higher education campuses in Montgomery County. In addition, the Universities at Shady Grove recently opened the Office of Veterans Resources to provide additional support for veterans and their families. Montgomery College’s Combat2College program provides academic and social opportunities, as well as support services for veterans and active/reserve service members.

For more information about the program, contact Michael Subin in the Office of the County Executive at 240-777-2530.
