Bill M“Without out Mr. McKillian’s presence, it may not have been possible for me to take the basic steps to further my education … I believe that Mr. McKillian’s commitment to provide superior services is second nature to him, and he doesn’t realize the actual impact that his concern and stellar performance has had on my family,” wrote West student and war veteran Gina. Due to complications from PTSD and physical disabilities, she described how navigating the usual enrollment and information processes is far more stressful for her than the average person. Nearly ready to give up, she found Bill McKillian, West’s Veteran Certifying Official.
