In honor of Veterans’ Day 2017, Skagit Valley College’s Mount Vernon and Whidbey Island campuses will team up to honor those who serve and those who have served.
From November 6-17, the Whidbey Island Campus will display a special exhibit in recognition of veterans in Oak Hall, as well as provide information on the television monitors throughout the building.
On Thursday, November 9th, the Mount Vernon Campus Veterans Club will join with members of PTK and the Human Services Club to host a barbeque at the Tollefson Plaza beginning at 1:30 (weather permitting). While there is no charge for the barbeque, a donation box will be will available. In addition, a cake-cutting ceremony will take place as part of their Veterans’ Day observance. Students will also be able to sign up for more information about the clubs involved.
“We are proud of the many faculty, staff, and students who have served our country in the military and the many contributions they make to Skagit Valley College and the community,” said Dr. Dave Paul, SVC’s Vice President for Student Services. “Our veterans are our colleagues, our students, and our leaders. We thank them for their service.”
