Navy veteran Meletha Glover transitioned to civilian life by enrolling at Lorain County Community College and the University Partnership.

Glover earned an associate degree in human resources management in 2012, business administration in 2013 and will graduate on Saturday, May 17 with a bachelor's degree in business administration from Kent State University through LCCC's University Partnership.

Glover served in the U.S. Navy from 1982 to 2001. During those years she was stationed in Italy and Puerto Rico, and was aboard ships home ported in South Carolina, New Jersey, Virginia and Maryland.

"LCCC is a veteran friendly school that allowed me to easily transition from the military into civilian life, allowing me to utilize my military benefits," Glover said. "I was better able to balance home life with my family and school without traveling far away," the Lorain woman said.

Glover will soon begin a paid summer internship with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Charleston, South Carolina. The internship was developed through her participation in the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP). Meletha worked closely with the WRP Campus Coordinator, Linda Telzrow, to create an internship which builds on her academic coursework to enhance her full-time employment potential. She hopes to soon have a full-time job with the organization.

During her time at LCCC and the UP, Glover has worked on campus, including most recently with the Disability Services office.

"My four years at LCCC and the University Partnership were positive and exciting. The instructors were very knowledgeable in their field of studies and I learned a lot. the work was very challenging at times but the reward in the end is worth it," Glover said.
