By: Lisa S. Icenogle

Casper College student Frank Herzberg, a member of the Casper College Veterans Club, was named a  Veteran Education Peer Advisor of the Month for February by the Peer Advisors for Veteran Education Program.

As a peer advisor, Herzberg helps student veterans and assists those who need it. His nomination noted that “ … (he) shows the utmost respect to everyone, makes them feel important and is willing to help get any job done.” Herzberg served 18 years active duty in the Navy as a damage controlman and two years in the National Guard before retiring, according to PAVE.

“Being awarded Peer Advisor of the month through the PAVE program is actually a pretty big deal,” said Nicholas Whipps, special population coordinator at Casper College. “Out of 40 different colleges and over 600 peer advisors nationwide, Frank was chosen for this award,” Whipps said.

The PAVE program, which began with 12 partner campuses, now has a total of 40 partner campuses. Of that number, Casper College is one of only three community colleges nationwide selected to participate in the program.

The Peer Advisors for Veteran Education Program is part of the University of Michigan M-SPAN network of programs providing services to service members, veterans, and military families.
