Monica McMillan, president of Student Veterans of America (SVC) Christanna Chapter at Southside Virginia Community College, was selected to attend the SVA Leadership Institute held in Savannah, Ga., recently. 

With a focus on easing the transition from combat to classroom and building sustainable student veteran organizations, the themes of the Leadership Institute were strategic planning, collaborative integration, advanced chapter management techniques and networking and professional etiquette.

Throughout the three-day event, student veteran leaders in attendance had the opportunity to work with other chapter leaders to develop innovative solutions to real-life scenarios that affect life on campus every day. Attendees were also able to connect with corporate leaders from the Institute’s co-host, Walmart, during networking receptions and events. The corporate sponsor for our event was Gulfstream General Dynamics Company.

McMillan is WIOA Youth Case Manager at SVCC.
