Why I Support Penn College

Marlin and Brenda Cromley are steadfast advocates for veteran success and are sponsoring "Serving Our Veterans," an online training program for Counseling Services to help veterans and their families build a framework of resiliency for mental health challenges or reintegration difficulties. The curriculum is based on the latest evidence and clinical practice guidelines developed by the Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs for treating conditions such as PTSD, traumatic brain injury, addictions, and depression.

"I am grateful to Marlin and Brenda for providing this continuing education opportunity, which will better equip our office to address the unique needs and specific issues affecting our veteran students during their time at Penn College. We are committed to providing quality, culturally competent care for our veteran students, and this training will help counselors develop the necessary skills to support this population." – Kathy Zakarian, Director of Counseling
