Earned Two Bronze Star Medals, Executive Officer for Member of Joint Chiefs of Staff

Colonel Reginald Neal

2014, Doctor of Education, Educational Leadership, Argosy University, Sarasota

Executive Officer for a Member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, The Pentagon


“I’m a very proud Argosy University graduate. I was honored to have presented the commencement speech at the Sarasota campus graduation.”

 

Colonel Reginald Neal is an executive officer for a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. He started the position recently, after completing command of the 48th Infantry Brigade Combat Team. “Last November, the Senate confirmed the list for me to be promoted to General Officer. Hopefully, after I complete this assignment in the fall, I should be promoted to Brigadier General,” he states.


He’s served the United States in the military for nearly 30 years, holding key leadership positions from the company to the division level. Colonel Neal also served as a Battle Major in the 3rd Infantry Division during ground combat operations. 


Colonel Neal has an impressive list of accomplishments—both professional and educational. He’s a graduate of Georgia Military College and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Field Artillery. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Georgia Southern University, master’s degrees from The Citadel and U.S. Army War College, and Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership from Argosy University, Sarasota.


During his time in the Georgia Army National Guard, he was chosen to command two battalions. He assumed command of the 1st Battalion, the 118th Field Artillery Regiment (Chatham Artillery) in August 2007.  The battalion was deployed to Afghanistan, where he served as Commander of Joint Task Force Kabul. Afterward, he took command of the Georgia Army National Guard Recruiting and Retention Battalion. He attended the Army War College, then was assigned as the Deputy Commander for the 648th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade in Fort Benning, Georgia.

 

In addition to his military work, Colonel Neal has taught high school and served as a high school vice principal. He’s also coached baseball and basketball and mentored students in his personal time. He volunteers for several social and civic organizations, including Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., ROCKS Inc., and American Legion Post. Colonel Neal is a Life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. 


Colonel Neal’s many awards and decorations include two Bronze Star Medals, the Legion of Merit, four Meritorious Service Medals, the Joint Service Commendation Medal (Afghanistan), five Army Commendation Medals, the Iraq and Afghanistan Campaign medals, the NATO medal, the Basic Airborne Parachutist Badge, the Combat Action Badge, and the Presidential Unit Citation. 


Colonel Neal, who in 2014 earned a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership from Argosy University, Sarasota, is commended by his fellow officers for his dedication and commitment. Colonel Randall Simmons the Georgia Army National Guard’s chief of staff, describes Neal as “the kind of leader everyone just likes to be around. He has had all of the hard assignments. And he has always sought those out.”

President of State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota, Dedicated to Enhancing Student Experience

4/21/2017

President of State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota, Dedicated to Enhancing Student Experience

2005, Doctor of Education, Organizational Leadership, Argosy University, Sarasota

President, State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota

“[My classmates were an] interesting group [who had an] amazing amount of insight and experience from different perspectives—ethics, for example.”  


Dr. Carol Probstfeld is the president of State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota, a public college with close to 50,000 graduates worldwide. Dr. Probstfeld joined the college in 2003, working as vice president of business and administrative services. In that position, she led an expansion of the school’s online learning opportunities as well as developed and implemented a new strategic plan. As president, Dr. Probstfeld uses her 20 years of higher education experience to build and nurture relationships—with a focus on enhancing the student experience.

Dr. Probstfeld said that she chose to attend Argosy University, Sarasota because of her family connections to Florida. “I was living in California and had family in Florida. [The school] had the Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership program at multiple campus locations—and the program was flexible.” 

She adds that through her studies, she gained a broader view of leadership. And she learned alongside a diverse group of classmates. “A lot of students were from the Pentagon, pursing doctoral degrees. It was an interesting group [who had an] amazing amount of insight and experience from different perspectives—ethics, for example.”  Her education at Argosy University, Sarasota also expanded her ability to apply and use critical thinking. Most of her education to that point had been technical in nature, and in the doctorate program, she enhanced her strategic thinking and problem solving skills.

Dr. Probstfeld emphasizes the relevance of Argosy University, Sarasota’s real-world classes that demanded she complete group projects and presentations quickly.  “Learning was so important. [There was a] diverse group of people, [and we had to] quickly come to an agreeable decision or recommendation.” She mentions that she always felt the support of the faculty—who assisted in guiding students through the program. “The faculty want you to be successful. Dr. Edminson, [my dissertation professor], made sure we were connected with [other students in the same position]. There were three of us going through [the dissertation process] at the same time.”

Now that Dr. Probstfeld is the president of a college, she looks back on her education and admits that she didn’t pursue her Doctor of Education with a president-level job in mind. “Having the doctoral degree gave me credibility among faculty and the campus community.”

In her position, she is able to guide students—many of whom, like her, are the first in their families to attend college. She views herself as a model for them—her family was lower income and she had to work hard to earn her degree. “You get out what you put into [your education]. I enjoy walking on campus and talking to students. I talk to them about their dreams and aspirations. I have the best job in world. I love what I do.”

Dr. Probstfeld, who in 2005 earned a Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership from Argosy University, Sarasota is active in several local organizations, including the Manatee Memorial Hospital Board of Governors, the Sarasota Chamber of Commerce, and serves as the chair of the Bradenton Area EDC.
