Veterans First Program Team
The Veterans First Program Team supports veterans, military families (dependents & spouse of veterans), and reservists enrolled at Las Positas College. The team is comprised of individuals who have a strong commitment to serving veterans.
Evelyn Andrews Veterans Program Supervisor
I oversee the mission, vision and goals of the Veterans First Program, as well as compliance with the requirements for enforcing VA educational benefits with the Department of VA. Possessing doctorate coursework under my belt, along with a Masters degree in Counseling, and Bachelor's degree in Communications, I have over 20 years of higher education experience service students. As the daughter of a Navy veteran, I am excited to assist veterans who have earned their educational benefits and assist them in the attainment of their educational goals.
