Louisiana's Community and Technical Colleges

"Student Success Stories"Lieutenant Colonel Jacqueline Randolph is a recent graduate of Bossier Parish Community College (BPCC) where she earned an emergency medical technician (EMT) certificate.

She is an active duty airman at the Global Strike Command Headquarters at Barksdale Air Force Base, La, and plans to retire next year after 26 years of service.

While serving in the Air Force, Lt. Col. Randolph became a pilot and gained expertise as a GPS satellite operator, missile launch officer, and university professor at five colleges in Tennessee and two in Mississippi. She currently serves as a science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) mentor at local middle schools.

In pursuit of her post-retirement goals, Lt. Col. Randolph enrolled in BPCC’s EMT course to gain knowledge in the medical field. After completing her certification, she enrolled in BPCC’s health care courses to pursue a nursing degree. After retirement, she wants to serve as a full-time missionary and global volunteer.

“Thank you BPCC for the flexibility and high standards of your institute, which allows me to prepare for my post-retirement goals while serving full time in the US Air Force,” said Lt. Col. Randolph.
