Kent State Honors Veterans

Kent State University held its annual Veterans Day observance on Thursday, Nov. 6, at 11 a.m. on the StudentGreen at Risman Plaza. The outdoor program, called Honoring All Who Serve, included a flag-raising ceremony conducted by a joint color guard from the Army and Air Force ROTC programs, and remarks from Kent State President Beverly Warren. Chief Petty Officer Timothy S. Flannery was the guest speaker for this event.

All were invited to come and pay tribute to America’s veterans. A special invitation was extended to Kent State faculty, staff, students and community members who are veterans, active service members or who have family members in the military. A reception was held in the Kent Student Center Kiva lobby following the program.
