  • PODCAST:  Meet Staff Sgt. Nichole Tovar, new president for Student Veterans of UAA

Just 27 years old, Staff Sgt. Nichole Tovar is trained as a combat medic/nurse and is mom to two young girls. She and her husband are both back in school--he's continuing the nursing education he began in the military and she's switched to a whole new field, culinary arts. This spring, Tovar took on leadership of the Student Veterans of UAA, a relatively new campus club. In this 12-minute interview <http://greenandgold.uaa.alaska.edu/podcasts/index.php?id=511> , she describes the challenging transition from combat to college life for veterans, and outlines her ambitions for veteran-supportive activities, services and events at UAA.
