“The Graduating Veterans Stole Ceremony is such an important event for the Daniels Center,” said Hilary Miller, center director. “While we are sad to see our students leave, we are excited for them. And proud of them. The last two years has led to even greater appreciation for what they accomplished. They followed the motto of ‘Adapt and Overcome’ and we are excited to celebrate — in person — their successes.”

A center official said more than 60 student veterans are scheduled to graduate.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Keith M. Huber, senior adviser for veterans and leadership initiatives, will share remarks at the Stole Ceremony. MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee and Provost Mark Byrnes will join Huber for the presentation of honors.

Miller will talk to the student veterans about their role as alumni when they graduate.
