Centenary pays tribute to veterans, announces designation as Yellow Ribbon School
Centenary College paid tribute to military veterans on Monday.
Lieutenant General James Kowalski, commander of the Air Force Global Strike Command, was the keynote speaker at an event on Centenary's Campus. Centenary President David Rowe also gave remarks during the event.
The school also used the event to announce Centenary's designation as a Yellow Ribbon School. The Yellow Ribbon program makes it possible for post-9/11 veterans or their dependents to attend Centenary tuition free.
"Our goal here is to educate students so that they can circle the world as wise, caring and moral leaders," Rowe said. "
"What better leadership program is there than the United States military? And we're so delighted to have people on campus who will be able to come here and enliven the conversations and help us to understand what it means to lead in the form of being a service member."
Centenary currently has 15 students receiving veteran administration benefits.
