Todds Host Reception for Student Veterans
President and Mrs. Todd along with the College of Education recently hosted a reception for student veterans at Maxwell Place, the Todd’s on campus residence.
The reception was used to highlight the College of Education’s new HOMEFRONT initiative. HOMFRONT stands for Honoring Our Military through Education: Flexible Recruitment of New Teachers. This initiative is a great addition to the federal Troops to Teachers Program. Troops to Teachers is a federally funded program designed to assist qualified veterans seeking teaching certification.
The President spoke to the gathering of students and administrators and thanked them for their dedicated service. He and Mrs. Todd graciously led tours of their home and expressed genuine gratitude to our veterans by giving them an American Flag label pin.
