Military Appreciation Month at Broadview University-West Jordan
Published on May 20, 2014 by Bob Trewartha
May is National Military Appreciation Month, and here at Broadview University we want to give a big thank you for all the members of the military for their service for all of us and our country. This great country of ours is only as strong as its freedoms, which are upheld by those who give service to protect them. We honor our veterans, service members, and families of military personnel not only in May, but every day.
It is part of the culture at Broadview to provide service to our community and a big part of that community are our military personnel. Broadview University-West Jordan has 15 military students, and they are eligible for our military scholarships. Broadview and our sister schools have awarded more than $5.2 million in military scholarships. Broadview has always considered this as an important way to give back to the military personnel for their service and sacrifice.
Throughout the month, we will have several events honoring our military students and staff, their spouses, and families. Below are some important dates to remember in May:
- Maritime Day â€“ May 22nd
- Memorial Day â€“ May 26th
Military Advanced Education (MAE) awarded Broadview University the designation of a Top Military-Friendly University in its 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities. “We are honored to accept this award from Military Advanced Education. We know how important education opportunities are to our military, and we strive to provide the tools they need to succeed,” said Mike Hughes, director of military student services at Broadview University
Broadview University respects the service and sacrifices of service members and the families who support them. As a military-friendly school, we understand the unique challenges that these students face when trying to earn college degrees. Broadviewâ€™s military student services staff provide assistance to active-duty, reserve and retired military personnel and their family members in their pursuit of higher education
