CHANGING COURSE, CHANGING LIVES.
Travis Barber has always wanted to teach. After working as a machinist, the U.S. Army Veteran pivoted to pursue his dream at UNC Greensboro. Enrolled within the School of Education’s Haggai Academy and supported by the campus’ Military- Affiliated Services office, Travis will be the first man in his family of farmers to graduate from a four-year college. Upon graduation, he plans to teach middle- schoolers, where he believes he can make the most impact as an educator.
