#BorneTheBattle 73: Jared Lyon – Navy Veteran, SVA President


If you’ve been following our Twitter or Instagram accounts, you’ve been seeing some stories and images from Student Veterans of America’s National Conference. It’s a place where thousands of student Veterans and their supporters convene to make the experience of achieving higher education more fulfilling for Veterans. During the conference I had the opportunity to sit down with SVA’s President Jared Lyon.

Jared was on the show about a year ago where we went through the routine questions and talked about the Veteran experience on campus.

This go-around, we talked about recent metrics showing Veterans’ success in higher education, how SVA chapters can keep the momentum going after the conference, and how people can support their local student Veterans.
