Athens State Hosting Veterans Day Program November 11

Veterans Day

Athens State University’s Office of Veteran’s Affairs is hosting a Veterans Day Ceremony on Tuesday, November 11 in the Ballroom of the Sandridge Student Center. The ceremony will take place at 11:00 a.m. and the public is invited. A complimentary luncheon will follow.

“We are not only honoring the hundreds of veteran graduates of Athens State,” remarks Veterans Education Advisor Carolyn Carthen, “we will be honoring all veterans for their service to our country.”

The mission of the Veterans Affairs office at Athens State is to assist active duty service members, veterans, reservists, Guardsmen, and family members with U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs education benefits and services.

“We have some exciting speakers and a very patriotic program,” adds Carthen. “I expect a large crowd to be on hand for this annual special event.”
