Meet some of our military/Veteran students: Elizabeth


Elizabeth joined the reserves in 2002 and went to basic training in South Carolina between junior and senior year of high school. After coming home to complete her senior year, she went to Texas for four months to complete combat medic training. She did three years of active duty in Fort Benning, Georgia and is currently attached to a reserve unit in Portsmouth.

“The Veterans representatives are wonderful. Deb Lancaster is the rep at Great Bay and she makes sure military students have all their paperwork submitted before the start of every semester,” reflected Elizabeth. “I use the Post 9/11 GI Bill and I've never had a problem with payments, which hasn't been the case at other colleges I've attended.”

Why she chose Great Bay CC: the location is convenient, the school is not overwhelmingly large, and class sizes are small.

Future plans: To continue her education and earn her Master of Science in Midwifery. Favorite Book: The Great Gatsby Favorite Movie: Cold Mountain
