Blue Chair, LLC Invests in Military and Veteran Education Venture

Jan 3, 2014

Pinterest × KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Chair, LLC, a Kansas City based holding company, has announced its partnership and investment in SynergEd, a company focused on developing high-quality military and veteran postsecondary education programs and services. SynergEd accomplishes this by working with institutions of higher education through a range of services, including:  assessment, consulting, compliance monitoring, training, program development, and government relations. Schools that pass SynergEd's comprehensive assessment criteria become certified and then have the opportunity to connect with military and veteran students on the OneKlickAway.com website. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20140103/CG40081LOGO ) "SynergEd evolved from our realization that many schools do not have the right tools and resources to appropriately support current and former servicemembers," said Suzanne Palmer, CEO of SynergEd. Looking ahead as the Post-9/11 wars draw to a close, participation in Veterans Affairs education benefit programs is expected to grow to over 5 million by 2020. While the complex regulatory and compliance environment that schools must operate in to serve military and veteran students may seem daunting, schools should openly embrace this growing population of students by creating and supporting quality programs and services. Today's veterans often lack peer support and struggle socially and academically without dedicated school-based programs and services that were available in the past to WWII veterans. However, the assimilation process for current and former servicemembers can be seamless and successful if schools invest in building a supportive framework. "The SynergEd team has a unique understanding of how to help schools become military and veteran supportive because they've gone through the process as both student and school staff. This insight and experience is an invaluable resource to all schools, whether they are starting from scratch or have existing programs and services," said Jim Hendrickson, COO of SynergEd. "Part of the appeal of partnering with SynergEd is the team in place. Suzanne Palmer has over a decade of education-based government relations, advocacy, and policy experience. Jim Hendrickson (Lt. Col USAFR) has years of experience in the education sector, as well as a 26-year career in the armed forces. Together they have built a company with a student-centric program, which creates a mutually advantageous relationship between students and schools by emphasizing quality and compliant higher education options," said Gregory Gragg, CEO and Chairman of Blue Chair, LLC. About SynergEd The SynergEd mission is to connect well prepared and serious military and veteran students with colleges and universities who have made the commitment to follow all relevant guidelines and regulations pertaining to this student population. SynergEd helps schools effectively reach and support military and veteran students through comprehensive compliance-centric services.
