Veterans Day observance at Tri-C Westshore

Cuyahoga Community College will honor the courageous men and women who served in the nation’s military during a Veterans Day observance at 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 8, at Westshore Campus.

The remembrance will take place in room 118 of the Liberal Arts and Technology building.

“Veterans Day provides an opportunity to pay tribute to the brave men and women who have defended this nation,” said Rick DeChant, executive director of the College’s Veterans Initiative. “The peace we enjoy is because of those who served.”

The program will include a presentation by Kelly Hunt, a U.S. Army veteran who served tours in Afghanistan as both a soldier and a diplomat during Operation Enduring Freedom. She was severely wounded in a suicide bomber attack during her second tour.

Hunt, of Avon Lake, now runs her own business and advocates for veterans.

Following the ceremony, the Veterans Resource Center at Westshore Campus will be open for tours. Tri-C serves thousands of Northeast Ohio veterans every year through its Veterans Initiative. For more information on programs and services, visit www.tri-c.edu/veterans.

Westshore Campus is located at 31001 Clemens Road in Westlake. Free parking is available.
