A Veterans Day Remembrance ceremony to honor all military veterans will be held Monday, Nov. 12, 10:45 a.m., at the flagpole on the South Florida State College Highlands Campus. The public is invited to attend.

The program includes remarks by SFSC student veteran speakers. The Avon Park High School AFJROTC; Knights of Columbus, Our Lady Queen of  the Universe Assembly; RSVP of Highlands County; Student Government Association Choir, One Voice; and Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 9853 will also be present during the ceremony. The program concludes with a Remembrance Walk along the SFSC campus.

“Veterans have made many sacrifices so that we today can live in peace and freedom,” said Erik Christensen, professor, SFSC natural sciences and United States Navy veteran. “A favorite quote of mine is ‘Freedom isn’t free.’ It was an honor and privilege to have served our great nation in uniform. Every day, I am grateful for that opportunity and use the skills and talents I learned in the military.”
