Cheryl Hagen, Vice President of Student Services

My grandfathers, aunt, uncle, and 2 cousins have proudly served, each in a different branch of the military. My aunt died 5 years ago due to health complications from unknowingly handling agent orange during her time in the Air Force during the Vietnam War. She never took a penny from her earned veteran’s benefits, saying the honor was serving her country, and she knew her life was at stake then and now. Our gratitude can never match the sacrifices willingly made by our Veterans.
Haley Mulka, Admissions

As a Daughter, Sister, Sister-in-law, Aunt and Friend to many veterans, I realize the sacrifice & commitment that they have given.  I just want to express my deep gratitude to all that are serving or have served our country!  Be safe!
Lisa Warrick, Liberal Arts

Thank you for making this world a better place with your courage, sacrifice, and dedication to our country.
Michelle Stando, Research and Analytics

As the proud daughter of a Vietnam War veteran, I sincerely thank all of our veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.  Your courage and selflessness is appreciated beyond words. 
Angela Ackman, Admissions

I am a Veteran of the US Army and was in the last graduating “class” of the Women’s Army Corp (WAC).  Having enlisted in the ‘70’s, just after Vietnam and when patriotism was publicly scorned, it’s wonderful now to see that service members are getting the respect they truly deserve.
Ann Prenger, Continuing Education and Professional Development

Thank you to those of you who serve, have served, or are supporting someone who serves in the military.  It’s such a priceless gift to have a safe and free country in which to raise our families and live our lives.
Julie Hill, Career Services and the Hinkle Center

Your brave service allows the rest of us to live in the land of the free. Thank you for your courage and dedication to this nation.
Michelle Fuher, Continuing Education and Professional Development

Thank you for serving our country and keeping Americans safe!
Laurie Kattuah-Snyder, Associate Dean of Advising and Partnerships

I am the daughter and niece of a number of dedicated US Navy and Army veterans who served in the Pacific and in Europe during World War II as well as the niece of a career Marine who served for his country in Korea and Vietnam. Many of my cousins have chosen careers in various branches of the service. I respect and thank all those who choose to serve.
Cheryl Snyder, Chemistry Instructor

On this day, we honor all current and former members of all branches of Our Armed Services. Our country’s greatness is built on the foundation of your courage and sacrifice. It is this respect and regard that I hold as precious to exercise every day as a Proud and Loyal American living under the blanket of Freedom that You provide!

HUA!  Hoorah!  Hooah! Hooyah! and Oorah!

Thank you!

Dear Veterans,
Thank you for your service to our country!!!!  Regardless of the branch you served in, the position you had, or your rank, you helped keep us safe and had a role in making the United States of America strong.  Thank you and Happy Veterans Day,
Cheryl Hawkins, PhD, Vice President and Chief Academic Officer

Words cannot express how much I appreciate all of the men and women who have or are currently serving our country. Not only by putting their own lives on the line, but also sacrificing time with their own loved ones to fight for the freedoms that we have. I am proud to say that my cousin is actively serving in the Army and have another close family friend who is currently deployed. Thank you for your courage, strength and sacrifice.
