|WORK AND COLLEGE: Matt Updegrove|
attended Peirce while in the National Guard
We wanted to recognize two of our recent military graduates here on the blog for the way they combined their working life and going back to earn their degree. First up is Matthew Updegrove, who chose to continue his education while serving the Army National Guard in Afghanistan in 2008.
He studied online while on active duty, and took both online courses and classes at our Center City campus upon his return. And he did it all while working for the Pennsylvania Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services. We were proud to see Matt walk at our commencement ceremony after earning his bachelor's degree in Paralegal Studies. Matt exemplifies what work-life balance is all about.
|COMMENCEMENT 2012: Wesley Vesterby came to Peirce|
after serving in the U.S. Army
Wesley graduated Cum Laude and is one of the first graduates of Peirce's new bachelor's degree program in Accounting. He also served as a Peirce ambassador, and is a member of Delta Mu Delta and the Chi Alpha Epsilon National Honor Society.
We thank Matt and Wesley for their service to our country and congratulate them on earning their degrees. It takes hard work and dedication, but it’s worth it. Congratulations to Matt, Wesley, and all of our 2012 graduates!
