The Usa-c team

FOUNDERS:

Dave & Paul Arslanian asked Megan Pomeroy (Academic Director, ERA and Coral Sands Academy) what she thought of their idea of an online junior college to serve junior college football players. Megan’s response was – YES there is a definite need  – and not only could they do it, “we must do it.” Megan became part of the TEAM; and then long-time associate and trusted friend Mark Brady was recruited to round out the founding TEAM at USA-C.
