Veterans Day Ceremony

Back to all events

This is a webinar event.
12:00 pm - 01:00 pm

One of the benefits of working at or attending a community college to start your professional journey is the diversity of individuals who choose to work or attend institutions like MCC.  And, all too often, when we recognize that diversity, we fail to pay due diligence in recognizing those who have chosen to serve in the U.S. armed forces.  Luckily at MCC, we have created a welcoming community of support for our military service members, veterans, and their families.

Under the leadership of Eric Wheeler, Assistant Director in the Office of Veteran Services, we continue to ensure that that the service provided by these brave men and women does not go unrecognized. And, it is worth noting that MCC is one of the few colleges in the country that made the commitment a few year ago to not only cancel classes, but to also close the college to honor the services of faculty, staff and students who served.

It is in the spirit of this recognition that we invite the entire college community to join us as we celebrate our veterans as part of the the 10th Annual Veteran’s Appreciation Week at MCC.  To kick off this special week, please join us for a virtual Veterans Day Ceremony on Tuesday, November 10, 2020, at noon.  You can click on this link to join the celebration.

We look forward to your support of this event as well as the other events for the week listed below:

In closing, in recognition of our service men and women who inspire every day, I offer you this quote from John Quincy Adams, who states, "If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."
