Hello, fellow veterans and students,

I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I am Elijah Cooley, and have been selected to be the new president for Student Veterans of America (SVA). I am 28 years old and am currently working towards Bachelors in Business Management and Administration. I recently finished my enlistment from the National Guard on June 6, 2013, after dedicating ten years and three deployments. I have been home now for one year and one month from my last deployment.

As a student organization, we have three main goals:

1. Reach $2,000 for our veteran’s scholarship by next September.

2. Increase veteran awareness among the students and the community.

3. Increase SVA membership and member’s participation.

I am very excited to be a part of the SVA and am looking forward to meeting as many members and potential members. The SVA provides a great opportunity to create new and lasting bonds as well as the networking for job growth. I understand it is not easy to be a veteran on campus and I still have times where I feel I do not fit in. Through the SVA, I have met many people who’ve helped me understand my role as a student veteran. I wish everyone the best of luck at Davenport and am always available for help or any questions. Thank you.




Elijah Cooley, SVA President
