Student Veterans group is making strides

Nebraska’s nine chapters of the Student Veterans Association (SVA) are making strides to provide resources, support and advocacy services for military veterans, according to Fredrick H. "Fred" Grossman, President of the Bellevue University’s  SVA chapter.

A 2002 graduate of the University’s B.S. in Healthcare Management degree program, Grossman is franchise owner of Home Instead Senior Care in Bellevue and Council Bluffs, Iowa.

As Nebraska Regional Representative for SVA, Grossman hosted Nebraska chapter representatives attending the annual Leadership Conference on the Bellevue University campus March 23. Activities included round-table discussions and reports on chapter activities during the past year. There also was a range of informative presentations by local representatives of the Veterans Administration and other non-profit organizations that work with veterans.

The Bellevue University chapter of SVA has more than 300 current-student and alumni members worldwide, including many serving overseas. For information about the Chapter, click here.

In the coming year, Nebraska chapters plan to connect via social media and combine resources across the state, according to Grossman. A 10th Nebraska chapter currently is being organized.  Next year’s spring Leadership Conference will be held at the University of Nebraska-Omaha.
