Leading with a Servant Mentality: John Cash with HBCU Esports and Gaming
After making Captain in the United States Air Force, John Cash was selected for training as a combat controller. Although he finished the training, he sustained an injury that caused him to be medically discharged. Although he was devastated not to be able to continue on that path, supporting service-disabled veterans has become a core part of his personal mission.
That mission, and his drive to succeed, has led to him crossing paths with a number of groups, including Vets2Industry. He now has his MBA and puts it to good use every day as an entrepreneur, college professor, and a mentor to his students.
In this episode of Veteran Voices, produced in partnership with Vets2Industry, Scott Luton interviews John Cash about:
· Why veterans have a higher turnover rate in jobs than the general population, especially when they have just transitioned out of service
· His work to build an e-sports and gaming curriculum club to not only attract more students to Johnston C. Smith University but also to diversify the industry
· The many relationships he has been able to build through his work in business, through his role as a professor, and through his military service
