Nationally recognized veterans advocate, Paul Rieckhoff, Founder and CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), will deliver the keynote address. Remarking on the school and its graduates, Rieckhoff stated, "These dedicated men and women are America's next greatest generation. Their dedication and tenacity represents the very best of the Texas spirit and American ingenuity. In tough times, you need tough people. And these graduates of Retail Ready are the tough people our country and our economy need right now. Smart employers big and small will jump at the opportunity to have these folks join their team. They are not a charity, they're an investment. Retail Ready is leading the way and America should take notice."
