Lander University awarded student veterans and honored deployed students, faculty and staff during its annual Veterans Day ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 7.
Lander senior Amir Goodwin, left, receives the award for Outstanding Student Veteran. In addition to his studies, Goodwin works on campus in Lander’s ITS department, and his colleagues commended him for his professionalism at work and in the classroom, saying he “strives for excellence in everything he does.”
Receiving graduation stoles, from left to right, are Amir Goodwin, United States Air Force; Jennie Corley, United States Air Force; and Adam Swann, United States Marine Corps. Student veterans may wear their stole as part of their regalia during Lander’s fall and spring commencement exercises.
