Adam Jones, a sophomore at Flathead Valley Community College, is dedicated to making life easier for veterans and their families by working with legislators and veteran advocacy organizations to promote and support better healthcare, education, and resources for veterans and their families. As a veteran of the U.S. Navy who has experienced some of the personal struggles that many veterans face, Adam is uniquely positioned for this civic service.
In addition to helping start Underwater Soldiers, a nonprofit scuba diving therapy program in Northwest Montana, Adam is pursuing his dream of creating a comprehensive therapy retreat for veterans and their families that would address critical issues such as suicide and reintegration into civilian life.
Adam is a high-achieving student who serves as President of FVCC's Veterans' Association, Vice President of Student Government, Co-Chair of the Interclub Council, a TRIO mentor and a Phi Theta Kappa member. A devoted father of three children, Adam finds time in his busy schedule to mentor struggling youth who are in need of a positive male role model.
I am a nontraditional student at Flathead Valley Community College (FVCC), a veteran, and a loving husband and father. In today's turmoil and political uncertainty, I believe veterans must not be forgotten. After experiencing the personal struggles many veterans undergo, I am passionate about developing a therapy program designed for veterans and their families to reduce suicide rates, family conflict and divorce, and to help veterans reintegrate into civilian life. For the past two years, I have worked with multiple veteran organizations and legislative leaders to promote and support better healthcare, education, and resources for veterans and their families. I serve on the board of directors for the nonprofit organization Underwater Soldiers, a scuba diving therapy program for veterans, and I am the President of the Veterans' Association at FVCC. In addition to my advocacy for veterans and their families, I serve as a mentor to underprivileged and struggling youth who benefit from having a positive male role model in their lives.
