Kansas City, MO – May 12, 2010 - One of the feature stories in the April 2010 edition of Military Advanced Education (MAE) magazine includes interviews with two currently deployed Grantham students and the University's Associate Director of Faculty, Cheryl Hayek. The article, "Foreign Correspondence," focuses solely on distance learning and the opportunities it affords to deployed service members.
Sergeant Justin Fanatia and Private First Class John Vaughan, Grantham students currently deployed to Iraq, talk about their experiences learning online while serving in less than favorable conditions. To read the article in its entirety, please view the PDF.
The University commends both students for their hard work and dedication to completing their courses while serving our country. Their effort is a reminder to each and everyone at Grantham University that motivation, encouragement, support and going the "extra degree" for our students, is one way we can thank them for their service and sacrifice.
As Grantham University celebrates its 60th year of meeting the educational needs of working adult students, this article is a great testament to the importance of online education and the opportunities it provides to those who for many reasons cannot take part in a traditional classroom environment.
