CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago-area community college is getting recognition for its work with veterans.

The Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs is awarding Moraine Valley Community College the governor’s award for veteran education excellence. The award is for the Fall 2013 semester.

Veteran Affairs Director Erica Borggren says Moraine Valley consistently supports veterans returning to higher education.

The community college is recognized for ensuring veterans receive credits from their military service. Veterans also get priority registration so they can finish school before their benefits eligibility ends.

The department also recognizes the school’s Veteran Resource Center. The center addresses the needs of veterans and their families through staff support.

Moraine Valley President Sylvia Jenkins says she’s proud to have school’s efforts recognized statewide.
