Student of the Week: Matthew Turnbeaugh

During most of the week you can find former Marine Air Traffic Control Sergeant Matthew Turnbeaugh heading into our new Veteran’s Resource Center on campus with his motorcycle helmet in hand. Since returning from deployments in the Philippines, Thailand, and Japan, Matt has put his focus back on his studies as well as his passion for motorcycle riding and photography.

Matt is completing his A.A. degree in Physical Education and is planning to transfer to earn his B.A. from UCLA in Sports Medicine, and his Masters in Kinesiology. His overall goal is to work as the strength and conditioning coach for Major League Soccer (MLS) or the National Hockey League (NHL).
