Bellevue University Student Recognized as 2022 G.I. Jobs Student Veteran Award Winner

Michelle Robertson Described as 'Force to Be Reckoned With'

Bellevue University student Michelle Robertson has been selected to receive a 2022 G.I. Jobs Student Veteran Leadership Award.  

The Student Veteran Leadership Awards honor 33 student veterans who are making a positive difference at their school and in their communities. 

“Michelle is truly a force to be reckoned with,” said Bellevue University Military Veteran Services Center Manager Heather Carroll. “Not only is she a veteran, she’s a mom of five boys, including a set of twins, and served as primary parent while her husband traveled for his work.”

Carroll added “She worked at our university’s military veteran services center throughout her time as a student, maintained a 3.71 GPA and assisted countless local veterans by scheduling appointments, providing tours and guiding them toward available DAV and non-profit resources.” 

Robertson received her Bachelor of Science in Management of Human Resources degree during Bellevue University’s spring commencement ceremony held June 4. 

Robertson served as a weather forecaster for special operations groups worldwide in the U.S. Air Force. She transitioned out of the military in 2004..

Robertson’s recognition will be published in the August issue of G.I. Jobs magazine, a print and digital publication that serves transitioning service members, veterans and their families.
