SUPERIOR- UWS alumni, faculty, staff, and students were honored Monday for their integrity and willingness to serve our country.
Twelve awards were given for excellence in service.
The ceremony was a first for the school and organizers were overwhelmed by the number of nominations.
Carl Huber, coordinator of the Veteran and Non Traditional Student Center, said, "It's so important that what's protected today is recognized, and that's our freedom."
Right now, 87 veterans go to UWS. The school is confident its veteran's center has helped create an easier transition from military to civilian life.
