Veterans Day Convocation
November 11 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFREE
Blackburn is bringing its annual Veterans Day Convocation back to campus. The American Legion Post 554, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 1104 and the College will honor United States military veterans at the event held in Clegg Chapel on the College campus. It is open to Blackburn faculty, staff, students, and all members of the community. A thank-you lunch will be provided free of charge for veterans inside the Demuzio Campus Center following the Convocation.
The College last hosted an official convocation event in November 2019. While virtual celebrations were held during the pandemic to help observe this day, the return of an in-person gathering allows for a more complete remembrance of the individuals who carry a legacy of courage and sacrifice. The program will include the Presentation of the Colors provided by the American Legion Post 554 and VFW Post 1104 Color Guards, special readings and recognitions. It will also feature a guest speaker recalling their time serving the United States.
The Veterans Day Convocation is coordinated by the Office of the Provost and will feature vocal and instrumental performances by the College Choir, Dr. Joseph Welch, and Dr. See Tsai Chan.
