SVA Student Veteran of the Year

Chris Rolph served five years in the Air Force and Reserves after graduating from high school. Now a senior at Queens University, Rolph is the president and co-founder of the Student Veterans of America (SVA) chapter QU4Troops. Under Rolph’s leadership the chapter has received a grant from SVA and Home Depot to build a proper veterans center on campus and the chapter’s membership has grown to about 15 active members. Rolph was selected from more than 120 nominees and nine other finalists for the 2018 Student Veteran of the Year award, given annually to recognize student veterans who are servant leaders on their campuses and in their communities. Rolph is slated to graduate from Queens University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration this May.
