In honor of Ventura College Veteran students, the Ventura College Veterans Resource Center and Ventura College Foundation invite the campus community as well as Veteran students and their families to its Third Annual Veterans Day Celebration and BBQ from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at the Ventura College Veterans Resource Center, 4667 Telegraph Rd, Ventura, Nov. 10. The event is free. More than 150 people are expected to attend.
“We are holding this event to show our appreciation and commend the perseverance and strength that each Veteran student brings with them to Ventura College and to civilian life in general,” said Norbert Tan, Executive Director. “Our Veterans Resource Center, now in its second year, provides essential tools and access to resources for veterans and their dependents, while helping remove some of the barriers to higher education and creating a path from veteran to student.”
The Veterans Day Celebration, sponsored again this year by California Resources Corporation (CRC), begins with a short program and remarks from the VCCCD Chancellor, the Ventura College Veterans Program Advisor, a Veteran scholarship recipient, CRC and more.
