Changing Lives 7,000 Miles from Home
Sgt. Alec Chebatoris appreciates how Robert Morris University understands the needs of military personnel.
A trained combat engineer in the Army Reserve, Alec is currently leading a team that’s in charge of training the Afghan National Army (ANA) on route clearance. But his long journey to Afghanistan began back when he was at RMU.
When he was a freshman, his company was sent away for two weeks for training. When he got back to Robert Morris, Alec’s biology professor let him postpone taking a test until he had time to catch up on homework. Then there was the extra effort that RMU’s veterans office put in to make sure he got his full GI Bill reimbursement for his classes.
