UC ingot   UC Clermont College will hold a Veterans Day celebration event on Wednesday, November 7 at 1 p.m, on campus.

The event will begin with a flag ceremony – a parading of the colors  –  in the Student Lounge located in the Peters-Jones Building at 4200 Clermont College Dr., in Batavia. The event is being sponsored by the UC Clermont Student Veterans Organization (SVO) and is open to the community. A reception will follow the event in the Student Lounge. 
Clermont County Commissioner Bob Proud and Ohio State Representative Danny Bubp, a retired USMC Colonel, will join UC Clermont Dean Greg Sojka in the celebration. Student Veterans will also speak, relating their military experience and what Veterans Day means to them.
“On Veterans Day we honor the hard work and sacrifice of the entire Veteran community - those who are living and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. Though Veterans should be thanked every day, there's never a better time to say thank you than on Veterans Day,” said Jeff Bosworth, Director of Veteran Affairs at UC Clermont, a retired US Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer and Vietnam War Veteran.
For more information about the event, please contact Jeff Bosworth at 513-558-5358 or
