Thanks to distant education he became the best instructor in the Corps

Mr. Kelly Bieschke was working as a Senior Instructor for the Army in the Basic Wheel Division of the Ordnance Corps. He needed something to give him an advantage over his fellow instructors. That's when he discovered the distance education program at the University of Management and Technology.

Kelly graduated with an Associate of Business Administration and a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice degree with 3.94 GPA. Since getting his degree he has been promoted to a Master Instructor, the highest level of instructor proficiency. He also has been recognized as the Instructor of the Year for the last three years. After graduating from the University of Management and Technology he has helped his department become the best department in the Ordnance Corps and has earned multiple Civilian Service Commendation Medals, Civilian Service Achievement Medals and numerous bonuses.

Since graduating he has spearheaded a program to help improve the teaching abilities of both his military and civilian instructor counterparts to be the best instructors they can be so they can graduate the best Soldiers in the world. Kelly has his annual food drive at his work to help the people of need in his community. He also does volunteer work at his church and for the community. 

"As a 20-year Army veteran I used my GI Bill on and off at regular colleges. To me it was just so difficult to fit it into my crazy schedule. Distance Education from UMT was a Godsend. I now have the degrees I have been trying so long to get."
