Waynesburg University’s Pathways Center will host a virtual Veterans Day Panel Thursday, Nov. 12, at 11 a.m. All are welcome to attend the free event hosted via Microsoft Teams.
The agenda will include Veterans Day remarks and a panel discussion focused on improving Waynesburg’s understanding of the needs of veterans at the University and within our community.
“We want to make sure the experiences of military-connected students and veterans are heard, and this panel is an opportunity to learn, connect and grow together,” said Sarah Bell, career development specialist and study abroad coordinator.
The Veterans Day Panel will feature Mr. Charles Stoddard, a veteran and Waynesburg University graduate student; SSG Jolene Trout, a human resources sergeant for the Pennsylvania Army National Guard; and Pennsylvania Army Reserve Ambassador Ernest Erlandson Jr.
The panel will be moderated by Dr. Michelle Steimer, assistant professor of counseling for the graduate and professional studies Counseling Program, and looks to provide attendees an opportunity for learning, fellowship and celebration of service.
“This panel offers our Waynesburg University community the chance to both honor veterans who have served and expand their understanding of how we can better help military members and veterans within our community,” Steimer said. “Also, the resilient stories shared by our veterans can offer inspiration for what it means to serve and grow despite adversity.”
This event is an offering from the Diversity & Belonging Initiative.
