Kaskaskia College to Host Grand Opening of Veteran and Military Family Student Center

April 15, 2019


Kaskaskia College is proud to announce that the grand opening of the new KC Veteran and Military Family Student Center will be Wednesday, April 24 at 2:00 p.m.  The Center is located on the main campus in the Student Center.

Carrie Hancock, Coordinator of Veterans’ Services says, “We are so excited to reveal the new space dedicated to veterans, military, and their families”.

The Center’s mission is to provide a space for the military community of Kaskaskia College to come together for camaraderie and support, while transitioning from the military to the classroom. Goals for the Center include connecting members of the military community as well as building involvement with KC’s Student Veterans of America (SVA) Chapter. In addition, peer to peer tutoring and mentoring programs will be established.

The Center was funded entirely by private donations including a large donation from an anonymous donor. A donor recognition area is planned for outside the Center.  

Refreshments will be served.  For more information contact Carrie Hancock at chancock@kaskaskia.edu or 618-545-3075.
