Northwestern Michigan College will host several public events commemorating Veterans Day on Monday, November 11, including offering special recognition to student, faculty, and staff veterans.

The college's planned schedule of events includes:

8:30am-9am: Breakfast for veterans in NMC's Dennos Museum
9am: Campus community gathers along the sidewalk from the Dennos Museum to the flagpoles west of the Tanis Building for the Walk of Honor
9:05am: Walk of Honor
9:10am: Flag ceremony by VFW, Taps, and the three-volley salute

NMC was ranked as the number-two community college in the country for veterans by Military Times magazine in its 2019 Best for Vets list, rising from a previous third place. Two new endowed (minimum $25,000) scholarships are available for student veterans through the Class of 1953 Veterans Memorial Scholarship and Staff Sergeant Drew Kostic Veterans’ Scholarship, and a $20,000 donation from Veterans In Crisis offers unrestricted assistance to student veterans.
