This featured Podcast is with First Sergeant Louis Sidney, Jr. and it focuses on the tips for success that he utilized while juggling his career as a soldier in the United States Army with being a single dad to daughter, Zakia, and going back to school.

A recent Hall of Fame award winner through the Association of Private Sector College and Universities, First Sergeant Sidney has served in the United States Army for 18 years (* see video below). Currently, he serves as the Company First Sergeant of Jackson Recruiting Company located in Jackson, Mississippi. 1SG Sidney earned his Bachelor of Science in Multidisciplinary Studies from Grantham in May 2010.

During his career, 1SG Sidney has been instrumental in turning around a command that was underperforming. His station in Mississippi went from completing 67% of its mission in 2008 to completing 116% in 2009 and 112% in 2010 under his guidance. Additionally, in a state with one of the highest drop-out rates and one of the lowest ranked educational systems, First Sergeant Sidney worked with district superintendents to introduce a March2Success program into the local schools.

Like many Grantham University students, he juggled work and family responsibilities with the pressures of earning a college degree. He did it, not only for himself, but also to ensure a successful future for his daughter. It is our hope that his advice and words of wisdom will provide you with the steps for success in pursuit of your own college degree.
