* Meet Sgt. Jason Mazingo

Jason MazingoJason Mazingo, an Iraq war vet, first met an MBC representative at a college fair in 2008. Thanks to the GI Bill, he earned a bachelor's degree in history from Mary Baldwin in May 2011 and is now working at Rockbridge County High School as an instructional assistant while waiting to get his teaching license from the Department of Education.

"MBC was a great fit for me because it allowed me to complete a majority of my classes from home," said Mazingo, a Buena Vista native who served an 11-month tour as an Army sergeant in Iraq. "It was a more convenient choice for me."
