Clark State honors veterans with week of activities

Clark State Community College will honor Veterans Day with a week full of activities, including the college’s first breakfast for those who served in the military.

The college has historically celebrated the week to show support for the military students and veterans who have or are attending the college.

“We are having our first annual breakfast for our veterans so that our students, staff and faculty members can just say thank you to them,” said Justin McCulla, Director of Student Life in Athletics at Clark State.

The breakfast will be on Thursday.

On Monday, U.S. flags were displayed across the college’s campuses including the Springfield campus on Leffel Lane, the Greene Center in Beavercreek and at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center in Bellefontaine.

The POW/MIA flag was scheduled to be raised at the Springfield Leffel Lane, according a news release from the college.

The Community College serves military students and their families while offering them discounts, according to the college’s website. “We are proud to honor the veterans and military in our Clark State community of students, alumni, faculty and staff,” McCulla said. “Veterans Day is November 11. I encourage all to join us as we recognize the accomplishments and sacrifices of the men and women in our nation’s military.”

Other activities this week include a fitness challenge on Tuesday by the U.S. Army to demonstrate how the military goes through training, McCulla said.

An event on U.S. trivia is planned for Wednesday.

The Clark State Community College will be closed on Monday, Nov. 12 in honor of Veterans Day.
