Women Veterans Event Held at the Louisville Campus



Jun 04, 2013

On Friday, May 17th, the service and sacrifice of women veterans were recognized and rewarded when the Kentucky Women Veterans Program (KWVP) of the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs (KDVA) hosted a day of pampering for women veterans at the Louisville Campus.

During the “Pamper a Woman Veteran” event, massages, manicures, and hair and make-up services were provided by student volunteers from local cosmetology and massage schools. Acupuncture, health and wellness information, and giveaways were also offered by volunteers from local businesses.

“Remember, she served, too,” is a motto often used by Robin Jones, coordinator of the KWVP, to remind others of the important role that women veterans play in the U.S. military. According to Ms. Jones, there are 27,000 women veterans in Kentucky. She holds events across the state to give women veterans the opportunity to network with one another and to gain information about programs and services that are available to them. Her next event, a “Women Veterans Meet and Greet” will be held at the American National University Lexington Campus on June 15th.

Hollis Kent, a student in the systems & user support program at the Louisville Campus, was one of the veterans who enjoyed the services that were offered. Hollis said that the event made her feel appreciated as a veteran, “and as a woman,” she added.
