Winthrop Honors Student Vets

Staff Report From York County CEO

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018

Winthrop University will honor veterans during a Nov. 8 special ceremony, with notes of appreciation and with a lunch for student veterans.

During an 11 a.m. ceremony in Dina’s Place, speakers U.S. Marine Corps Captain James Vinyard and U.S. Army Sergeant Ronald Barker will discuss their commitment to the armed services. The ceremony is sponsored by the Student Veterans of Winthrop University and Military, Adult, and Transfer Services.

Military, Adult, and Transfer Services gathered notes of appreciation to veterans last week and this week which will be posted in the Student Veteran Center along with yellow ribbons. All proceeds will go to a charity of the Student Veterans of Winthrop’s choice.

Individuals wishing to write notes or buy a yellow ribbon may contact Military, Adult, and Transfer Services. American flags will once again line Scholars Walk in honor of Veterans Day, but will be displayed on Nov. 8 to coincide with the ceremony (weather permitting).

Winthrop’s student veterans are invited to join together in the Student Veterans Center in the garden-level of Bancroft on Nov. 8 to enjoy a Veterans Appreciation Lunch. Lunch will be served immediately following the conclusion of the Veterans Day Ceremony.
