HOUSTON - May 29, 2018 - PRLog -- NextOp is very pleased to announce that they have received a generous $5,500 donation from Amegy Bank of Texas.  The donation was presented to NextOp's Executive Director, John Boerstler, by President of Amegy Bank-Houston, David E. Stevenson, and Senior Vice President and Community and Business Development Manager of Texas, Bill Palko.  It was a special honor to host Bill, who served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam and Cold War Eras.

NextOp is a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains, and places high-performing middle-enlisted military leaders into industry careers. Today's transitioning veterans are highly skilled, dedicated, and adaptable individuals with an unparalleled work ethic. Yet, for many veterans, the transition from military to civilian life is an arduous one. Transferring the talents they honed in the military to an industry where they have few or no connections can be a long and discouraging process.  NextOp's successfully transitioned military veteran Employment Coordinators engage other veterans one-on-one to help tailor their resumes, build their professional network, connect with mentors, prepare for interviews, and ultimately transition the valuable skills they have developed in the military into a rewarding and fulfilling civilian career.

May is an important month for military individuals and their families, and it is a time to recognize and show appreciation to the Armed Forces of the US for their service and sacrifices.  NextOp celebrates this month with the #MilitaryMay campaign by recruiting mentors and raising funds to support their employment programs. Amegy Bank's support of NextOp during #MilitaryMay means that more service men and women will have a successful transition into their next career.  NextOp's executive director said "gifts like this make it possible for NextOp to continue to serve our veteran clients. We thank Amegy Bank for this generous donation and for their commitment to helping the local community."
