Education Pillar

The Education Pillar mission is to open and make available pathways to collaboration and assistance for any veteran or military family member in the pursuit of an education in the university system or technical colleges, and those looking for certifications, internships, and apprenticeships.

Tyler Freeman, MBA Student at Emory University & Co-Director, Education Pillar

TYLER FREEMAN was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and joined the United States Marine Corps in 2008.  He was stationed in the Carolinas shortly thereafter with military occupations primarily involving helicopter squadrons as an Aviation Maintenance Supervisor and a CH-53E Helicopter Crew Member.

After 5 ½ years of service and three deployments (2 to Northeast Africa and 1 to Afghanistan), Tyler received an honorable discharge from the Marine Corps in April of 2014 to pursue undergraduate studies at University of North Carolina at Greensboro. While enrolled, he held a concurrent full-time position at Ameriprise Financial. He completed a bachelors degree in Business Administration (Magna Cum Laude) at UNC Greensboro in December, 2017.
Tyler then relocated to Atlanta after he was accepted to Emory University’s Goizueta Business School, where he will begin the full-time MBA program in August 2018.
When Tyler is not studying, he is either looking for a new international location to visit, scuba diving, or motorcycling with his girlfriend Lea. He also enjoys finding and tasting rare and small batch bourbons around the country.
