From Dwayne Gordon, Associate Director of Veteran Outreach, University of Nevada – Las Vegas: “Leroy is an absolutely amazing team player. He has promoted the PAVE program throughout his social work cohort, which has resulted in 3 new Peer Advisors for our team. Not only is he a top-notch PAVE recruiter, but he also took the initiative to assist all new team members in acclimating to the program. While taking the time to help his teammates, he is also an excellent Peer Advisor. He is consistently one of the top “Interactors” on our team.”

From Leroy Hudson: “Giving back to the veteran community has always been a huge interest of mine. I enjoy being a part of the team at UNLV because together we are a family and I can always trust that someone will be there for me, as I am for my team. I feel that it is a tremendous help because we bridge that gap between what is troubling a student veteran and providing the support that could ultimately provide a solution to their issue at some point, and in return helps me to become the person I strive to be and that is a better social worker. At the end of each day, we grow to be better students, and being a part of PAVE puts me closer to my individual goal along with helping our fellow student veterans become successful.”
