November marks Veteran's month on campus at UWM. Veteran's month includes a spectrum of events tailored to give thanks and receive recognition for the sacrifices that our nation's veterans have made. This month I have worked with Michael Kirchner of Military and Veteran's Resource Center (MAVRC) to help get my first year military students involved in this effort. On Friday November 6th, 2015 we attended the Vet's Ball at the Renaissance Place on Prospect Ave. The Vet's Ball included a keynote speaker, an extravagant dinner, a silent auction, a dance, and a student scholarship for $1,000 that was issued to a military student in attendance. All proceeds from the tickets and auction will go towards supporting UWM's military students on campus. Both my students and I were very excited to attend this event.
