A graduate of the University of Memphis with a bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering Technology and a graduate of the Naval Postgraduate School with a master's degree in Logistics Management, Bevel has been interviewed on numerous television shows including Fox and Friends and Huckabee.

Albany Tech's chapter of SFC exists to promote a sense of civic and professional responsibility, while embracing students with fellowship, prayer, and empowerment.

Working within the Christian framework to encourage the students to achieve their goals at the college and in their community, SFC provides a Christian atmosphere for students to develop the competencies needed for their chosen occupational fields of study.

It is a non-denominational organization open to all Albany Tech students.
