Above and Beyond: UNLV Student Veteran Wins National Award
The 2018 President of Rebel Vets, Alexandria Sawin, was named national Student Veteran of the Year by the Student Veterans of America. She was among 10 finalists throughout the country. In addition, the chapter she led at UNLV was also a finalist for the Chapter of the Year Award. As a leader of the very active Rebel Vets group on campus, Sawin organized a ruck march across Nevada to honor the 9,650 service members who have lost their lives since 9/11. She has also led policy discussions and advocated for legislation, including the Hire a Student Veteran Act.
