Assistance for Veterans who want to continue their education

Interview with Condace Pressley 

Recently, the L.E.A.R.N Foundation opened a brick and mortar location in Dallas, GA. This nonprofit seeks to provide innovative and structured educational outreach programs to veterans. The organization has a new program, Veterans Upward Bound which will allow qualified veterans to have free access to services barring them to educational success. This is one of three similar programs in Georgia. To qualify, veterans must live in one of these Georgia counties: Bartow, Carroll, Douglas, Floyd, Haralson, Paulding or Polk. The man behind the program Dr. Dalton Lemelle, Jr., CEO of the L.E.A.R.N. Foundation and an Air Force veteran is today's guest. His story of graduating high school with only a 5th grade reading level to earning his Ph.D. with support from the Air Force illustrates how critical programs like Veterans Upward Bound are to the community.
