Reaching the Goal to Make a Difference

When walking around the campus of Vol State, the idea of a student randomly playing their guitar isn’t usually the first thing that comes to mind.

Josh Moore is twenty three, and this is his second year at Vol State. With a guitar strapped to his back, and playing a few tunes while waiting for his shift to start at the Publix across the street, he starts talking to me about his goals in life. Music is not his major, but it is something he enjoys. “Medical Engineering is my focus, and I would like to design prosthetics. I want to better humanity,” Josh said.

The military is a subject that Josh is very passionate about. His family has been in the armed forces, and he currently has a brother in Iraq. He gives to the Paralyzed Veterans of America, and hopes that he can aid in helping those who need prosthetics due to war injuries. Josh is thinking of joining the United States Marine Corp when he finishes this year of college.
