Posted by Daniel Sloan on Feb 16, 2016 1:30:00 PM

Our Regional Managers spend a lot of time in front of current, past, and future Trident students. These men and women spend their time on the road, visiting bases, conferences, and other events connecting with veterans and those in the military who aspire to return to school.

Transitioning out of the military and going back to school can be a challenge, but like many of the challenges veterans and members of the military have faced, these can be overcome. Our Regional Managers know what it’s like since they have all walked down the same path before.

EDUCATION: THE FIRST STEP IS THE HARDEST

Posted by Phil Johndrow on Aug 19, 2015 5:00:00 AM

What is our true potential? Do we know where life is going to take us?

While it’s hard to see the future, we’ll never know what our future holds if we don’t take that first step.

The first step takes courage. It’s a step into the unknown, the start of a journey into unknown territory. It’s easy to be held back. Anxiety, confusion, and even those close to us can hold us back.

We’ll hear voices telling us not to jump in, not to go ahead, to maintain the status quo, and to let it be.

But how will we know our true potential if we listen to all of those voices?

MEMORIAL DAY REFLECTIONS

Posted by Phil Johndrow on May 22, 2015 7:00:00 PM

“Our Nation is free because of brave Americans, who volunteered to confront our adversaries abroad so we do not have to face them here at home, and I believe it is our responsibility as Americans to preserve the memory of our fallen.”

ACKNOWLEDGING MILITARY CHILDREN DURING THE MONTH OF APRIL

Posted by Phil Johndrow on Apr 27, 2015 8:42:31 AM

This blog is written as part of the "Month of the Military Child," which is acknowledged each April by the Department of Defense.

When someone talks about being a military brat or angel, it does not mean that they have lived a life of luxury.   Rather, this is a child of someone who is proudly serving in the United States military, and it’s a child who has made his or her own sacrifices.

Many may envy a military child since they have the unique opportunity to travel around the world, meet new people, and learn about different cultures, but these unique opportunities also help create resiliency. This resiliency will assist them as they move every few years, having to make new friends and become familiar with new surroundings.
