Mtech Honors Veterans with Luncheon
Montana Tech will sponsor a Veteran’s Appreciation Luncheon on Wednesday, November 9th at noon in the Copper Lounge of the Student Union Building. The event has two purposes: first, it is intended to demonstrate honor, respect and appreciation for Tech students, faculty, staff and alumni who are veterans; and second, it is intended to coincide with the national recognition of Veteran’s Day.
“We feel a special responsibility toward and affinity for our students who are veterans,” said Paul Beatty, Tech’s Dean of Students. “We know the many sacrifices they have made in order to serve our country. We want to thank them and let them know that they are genuinely appreciated.”
The scheduled speaker at the Veteran’s Appreciation Luncheon will be Jack L. Bailey, Jr. Mr. Bailey serves as Director of Veterans’ Education and Training at the Montana Office of Public Instruction.
Montana Tech is starting a student veterans’ organization the purpose of which is to provide a close community for its student-veterans by maintaining a productive environment between the student veteran community and the university administration, faculty, and student body. Tech also provides student-veterans tutoring as well as special advising for disability services and educational benefits.
