HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – Blue Ridge Community College celebrated veterans on the Transylvania County Campus and the Henderson County Campus this week.
In Hendersonville, students gathered in front of the Patton Building to have lunch from the Southern Hawg food truck. Veterans received a meal ticket, and all students received a Blue Ridge Challenge Coin and a new sticker featuring Abe, the Student Life Mascot.
Coordinator of Student Life & Wellness Erin Stevenson said the events serve as a way to welcome and celebrate veterans.
“Blue Ridge Community College’s Student Government Association and Student Veterans Club value the service and sacrifice of all students, staff, and faculty who have served in our armed forces,” Stevenson said. “At our Veterans Day celebration, we strive to provide a safe and welcoming space for veterans to feel appreciated and to educate those around them about the culture and values of the military.”
Blue Ridge Community College is a certified Military Friendly School. More information about veteran services is available at blueridge.edu/veterans.
