Graduate Xavier Wimberly visits the Center for Military & Veteran Education at Excelsior College in Albany, NY.
Recent graduate Xavier Wimberly attended Excelsior College’s annual commencement ceremony at the Empire State Plaza on July 8, 2016. The day before, he and his family stopped by the Center for Military & Veteran Education to meet some of the staff, counselors, and military academic advisors.
An Army veteran, Wimberly completed his Master of Science in Criminal Justice in June 2016. He had previously earned his Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice with concentration in Administration of Criminal Justice in August 2015.
The icing on the cake for Wimberly was that his eldest son Jamaree, an active duty Navy sailor stationed in Japan, was a student at Excelsior even before he started working toward his own educational goals. Jamaree is currently a first year student pursuing his Associate of Applied Science in Administrative Management Studies.
They know that, when it comes to reaching educational goals, for them it’s “like father, like son.”
