Becker Community Veterans Speak at Veterans Day Ceremony

Published on Monday, November 12th, 2012

Veterans Day is a time in which we acknowledge those men and women who serve and have served our country as members of the military. They uphold the American way of life and have risked much so that we can enjoy the safety and security that much of the world still struggles to achieve.

To honor the veterans among the Becker College community as well as the approximately 23.2 million veterans who have also served our country, the College commemorated Veterans Day with a ceremony on Monday, November 12, at 11:00 a.m., on the Worcester Campus quad.

The program included words from members of our community who have served their country–Chris Lizotte ’15, Dean Hickey ’83, and Professor John Deitrick–a reading of the names of our faculty, staff, and students who have served, and attendees were led by .

Banners, in addition to 100 American flags, were placed on each campus, and red, white, and blue ribbon pins were distributed at College dining halls.
