UC Clermont College will hold a Veterans Day celebration event on Friday, November 8 at 11 a.m.
The event will begin with a flag ceremony – a parading of the colors – in the Student Lounge located in the Peters-Jones Building at 4200 Clermont College Dr., in Batavia. The event is being sponsored by the UC Clermont Student Veterans Organization (SVO) and is open to the community. A reception will immediately follow the event in the Student Lounge.
U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup and Clermont County Commissioner Bob Proud will join UC Clermont Dean Greg Sojka in the celebration. Candace Dressell, UC Clermont’s Student Veteran Organization (SVO) president, will say a few words about the SVO and its mission on campus.
“On Veterans Day we honor the hard work and sacrifice of the entire Veteran community – those who are living and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. Though Veterans should be thanked every day, there's never a better time to say thank you than on Veterans Day,” said Jeff Bosworth, Director of Veteran Affairs at UC Clermont, a retired US Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer and Vietnam War Veteran.
