by: Troops to Trades
August 21, 2014
“The Nexstar Legacy Foundation’s Troops to Trades program is proud to announce the very first fund award-winner has accepted the position of ride-a-long coach at Allen Services in Fort Collins, Colorado. The recipient served in the Marines from 2001-2005 and received an honorable discharge as a Corporal in 2005 and moved back to New Orleans.
As of 2012, the fund recipient was attending school and working as a waiter, unsure of his next move, when he learned of the Troops to Trades program. He was awarded a Nexstar Legacy Foundation fund to attend Service System School, with the hope of pursuing a sales oriented position within the industry.
