Former Soldier Now at CIA is Profiled on CNN for Veterans Day

Michael Randolph in CNN profileFormer U.S. Marine machine-gunner Michael Randolph was profiled in a CNN feature that aired on the national cable network on Veteran’s Day. Randolph earned his associate degree from the CIA the same weekend the story ran, and he’ll be returning to the Hyde Park campus in January to begin his junior year, as he pursues a bachelor’s degree in culinary arts management.

Randolph is one of close to 150 current students who have served on active duty in the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard and are using their Post-9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program benefits to study at the CIA as they transition into their post-military careers.

The CIA’s commitment to America’s service members goes back to the college’s founding in 1946, when the first class of students consisted of World War II veterans studying with the support of the original GI Bill. For more than six decades, the college has worked closely with all branches of the U.S. military, providing culinary training for active service members and college education for veterans. Information for veterans interested in enrolling at the CIA can be found at www.ciachef.edu/veterans.
