Chico State honors veterans

November 9, 2016

Students, faculty and community members gathered to honor veterans Wednesday afternoon.

Chico State has been recognized on the Military Friendly Schools list for six years.

“It’s really meaningful to support veterans not only in academia but within the community,” Larry Langwell, coordinator of Veterans Affairs, said.

Veterans Affairs support not only the 200 veterans on campus but also the 450 dependents connected to veterans. They provide over $7 million in benefits per year, according to Langwell.

“Our veteran community is both strong and highly motivated,” President Gayle Hutchinson said.
