This designation is significant because it tells military personnel and veterans that MGCCC is a college dedicated to ensuring their successful admission and completion.The college was also recognized as a Top 10 Military Spouse Friendly School.Michael McGraw, retired from the Air Force after 21 years, is a native New Yorker, and he moved to Mississippi after living in Florida, California, Alaska, and Colorado.He and his wife chose Diamondhead to settle down after he retired from his second career.He began college at MGCCC to study Computer Networking Technology and plans to complete the program in 2022.I do not like to be idle and am not really cut out for retirement, so I decided to return to school, McGraw said. I chose MGCCC because I am a strong believer in community colleges and what they do. The Veterans Administration benefits specialists at the college have been very helpful in walking me through the process and helping me get Veterans Administration benefits. Im very lucky I chose MGCCC.Lorrin Logan, a U.S. Navy Veteran of eight years and a military spouse, agreed that she received excellent service from the MGCCCs Military Benefits and Veterans Administration certifying personnel.One of the factors in my choosing to attend MGCCC rather than a university was that they are the No. 1 military friendly school, she said.I knew that meant that I would get excellent assistance and guidance in arranging financial aid and in planning for my future outside the military.Logan is a business major and plans to transfer to a university in the fall.I have received so much support in helping me ensure my credits transfer and that I took classes that would transfer in the first place, she said.I honestly believe the college should be shouting this ranking from the rooftops because our local military personnel need to be aware of what an incredible educational asset they have right here on the Coast.Lorrin Logan, U.S. Navy Veteran and MGCCC student26'
