Columbus State student veteran among 11 selected nationally for honor

Update | Friday, December 17, 2021

The National Veterans Leadership Foundation (NVLF) has selected its inaugural class of Leadership Fellows for 2022. Students selected for the program will represent their institution in a six-month leadership development program to advance their professional preparedness and engage them in service to their institution’s military community.

Columbus State’s Tyler Musick is among 11 who will join an elite, national group of outstanding veteran, military, and connected students. The other 2022 Fellows include Hanbum Kim, The Ohio State University; Jose Aponte, Indiana University; John Barboza, University of Texas-San Antonio; Fenrir Bowker, University of California Los Angeles; Natalie Burke, University of South Florida; Cassandra Kaiser, University of Nebraska-Lincoln; Matthew Keenan, Penn State University; Christopher Mahn, Cornell University; Chameli Singh, Florida Atlantic University; and Nathan Vacha, Ashland University. 

Based in New Albany, Ohio, NVLF supports colleges and universities across the country that seek to better serve their military and connected students. NVLF works to strengthen the university offices that support the military community on each campus.  

“We are so excited to welcome our 2022 Fellows,” says Jim Miller, president of the National Veterans Leadership Foundation. “Each of these individuals brings with them a history of accomplishment and an outstanding dedication to continue to be of service — qualities we know will not only help them develop professionally but also positively impact veteran and military students on their campus.” 

“By improving the experience of military and connected students during their time on campus, we’re making a lasting difference for those who have chosen to serve,” adds Miller.  

 The NVLF Student Leadership Fellows will kick off their program in January with a three-day immersive experience in Columbus. Following the event, Fellows will work directly with their university to help develop programs and resources for their institution’s military community.
