When Ben Johnson ’11 of Boiling Springs, S.C., transferred to Gardner-Webb University in 2008, he was determined to complete his degree and uphold his commitment to serve his country. “I joined the Army after graduating from high school and was stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C., in 3/319th AFAR 82nd Airborne Division,” Johnson related. “I decided after three years that I wanted to go back to school, so I joined the North Carolina National Guard, HHC 505th Engineer Combat Battalion.”
