Guard your Country and your Future

Guard your Country and your Future

Have you ever wanted to make a difference in the world? What if there was a way to graduate college with no debt? By joining the Ohio National Guard, both of those goals can become a reality. It is a part time job while going to college. For just one weekend a month, they provide a 100% scholarship to any public college in the state of Ohio. This is the only program in the United States of America that will give you 100% of your tuition money. The program is in six year terms, meaning six years of one weekend a month gets four years of college at no expense to you. However, there is a training program for 2 weeks in the summer. Also, if any natural disaster happens, such as Hurricane Sandy, your Unit will be deployed in order to help the health and aid of individuals who suffered from the horrific event. Emma Park, a Junior at MHS, said “I think the main benefit is paying for all of your college and it’s better for your future because you are listed as a veteran.” By setting students up for graduating from college with no debt and having a military history on future resumes, the Ohio National Guard is a great way to set up your future for success.
