Taking Advantage of the Tuition Waiver Program

Lt. Roley KikerLieutenant Roley E. Kiker, Troop A – Pensacola, received his Master’s Degree in Education from the University of West Florida. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 3.91 GPA. Lt. Kiker was able to complete his graduate school through the tuition waiver program. He was also able to complete his graduate program without the need to take the available Educational Leave of Absence.

He has been accepted to the Doctoral Program at UWF and hopes to begin working toward his Ph.D. Additionally; his oldest son is a junior also attending UWF. Although it was difficult at times to juggle graduate school, shift work, and family obligations it goes to show that employees can and do take advantage of the educational opportunities offered to our members.

“Congratulations”- Roley
