In celebration of Veterans Day, Waynesburg University will host a Veterans Day history walk and service project Thursday, Nov. 11, at 6 p.m. in Johnson Commons. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend the event.
Attendees will be able to participate in a “Walk to Remember” featuring veterans from several conflicts including Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Desert Storm, as well as others. Attendees will also have the opportunity to complete a service project.
The event was organized by Dr. Michelle Steimer, assistant professor of counseling for the Graduate and Professional Studies Counseling Program, with collaboration from the Center for Service Leadership and the Alumni Office as a part of the University’s Diversity & Belonging initiative.
“Waynesburg University is lucky to have Dr. Michelle Steimer, who not only teaches at the University but is a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Reserve. Her passion and experience helped bring this event to life,” said Sarah Bell, career development specialist and study abroad coordinator. “Providing support and programming specifically focused on veterans and our military-connected students, faculty and staff is just one way that we are continuing to create spaces that prioritize belonging.”
