Staff Report From Columbus CEO

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018

Columbus Technical College will be rolling out the red carpet in recognition of Veterans Day with a special ceremony this Thursday, November 8th at 11:00 a.m.  The event will take place in McCaulley Auditorium in the Patrick Hall building on the main Manchester Expressway campus. We hope you can enjoy us for this important tribute – all are welcome!

The ceremony will feature participation by Columbus Technical College students and staff, the posting of the colors from Kendrick High School’s JROTC program, the somber “White Table” ceremony, and special addresses by Patricia Liddell with the Central Alabama Veterans Administration Health Care System and Columbus City Councilor John M. House. Veterans who attend will be treated to a box lunch after the event.

Columbus Technical College supports veteran, active duty, retirees and military dependent students with plenty of financial aid options including access to the V/A Bill. The College also shows appreciation for this special population in other ways like providing a special Veterans Lounge as well as a chapter of the national Student Veterans Association. And for five years in a row, Columbus Technical College has been recognized as a Military Friendly School.
