CCA to Hold Veteran’s Day Event
[Selma, AL] Concordia College Alabama will be holding a Veteran’s Day ceremony and lunch on Friday, November 11 for all local veterans. The ceremony will begin at 11:00 a.m. in the college’s Wright Complex Auditorium and lunch will be served following the service. The event is being co-sponsored by the CCA Honors Program, Rosa J. Young Center for Women, and Division of Health Sciences.
The college has also partnered with the local Selma Walmart to participate in the Greenlight a Vet campaign, a national initiative created by Walmart to honor veterans. Walmart has donated green light bulbs to Concordia to help light up the campus in green during the month of November as a symbol of support for veterans.
“We are honored to partner with our local Walmart for the second year in a row to honor our veterans. They truly deserve our gratitude,” said Dr. Chinwe Okeke, honors program coordinator.

The Concordia College Alabama Honors Program will be hosting a series of events to show appreciation for Selma/Dallas County public servants.
The CCA Honors Program students have created this initiative to help build bridges and promote better relations between the community and those working in public service occupations (i.e. firefighters, sheriffs, judges, police offers, military officials, elected officials, etc.). Each Monday during the fall 2016 semester, the Honors Program will invite a public servant to speak and answer questions so that the community may have a better understanding and appreciation for the work that they do. The acronym T.A.G.S. stands for Teamwork, Appreciation, Growth, and Synergy, all of which CCA hopes to promote through this series.
To show further appreciation, the Honors Program will “TAG” a public servant’s break room/lounge at work with doughnuts, coffee, orange juice and fruit as a token of appreciation for service to the community. In addition, a Concordia College Alabama T.A.G.S. gift bag will be given to the public servant.
The events will be held every Monday in CCA’s Wright auditorium from 12:00-1:00 p.m. The entire Selma/Dallas County community is invited and encouraged to attend. The events are free and lunch will be served.
