Veteran's Day Visit
On Thursday, November 7, two of our College for Continuing Studies staff, who are also veterans of the Armed Forces, joined in a Veteran’s Day celebration at Clyde Boyd Middle School in Sand Springs, Okla.
Pictured left to right are Lieutenant Ron Diggs (Navy), Petty Officer First Class Karen Cruice (Navy), Ensign Ellhrick Cerdan (Navy), and Colonel Bill Tully (Air Force, Retired). Colonel Tully is the CCS Adult Programs Chair in Tulsa, and Lieutenant Diggs is the Director of CCS.
Attending three assemblies throughout the day, our veteran’s spoke to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students, as well as to parents, about teamwork, the symbolism associated with the folding of a flag, the influence God has had in military tradition and about choosing to be extraordinary.
In total, there were approximately 500 students and parents who heard the message of our veterans.
