ASHEVILLE NC – A group of A-B Tech volunteers led by Tom Anspach, veteran of the U.S. Air Force, has created a relaxing environment in Birch 115 for the Vet Connections Café. The cafe is open from 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesdays.
Veterans attending the College can come to take a break, enjoy some refreshments, network with other veterans, study and receive tutoring from volunteers. Anspach is an A-B Tech adjunct and volunteers tutoring veterans. There is full Internet access, print capabilities and help with computer applications available. The volunteers participating can help direct students to other tutoring resources when necessary.
Vet Connections Café is Anspach’s brainchild and became reality due to support from Pamela Silvers, Chair of Business Computer Technologies and Interim Chair of Networking Technologies, and Mary Albert, Coordinator of Veterans’ Services. Other volunteers are John Erwin, Brad Burris, Elizabeth Semple and Liz Watkin. For more information, call Albert at 398-7206.
